    Ste,
    That might have had something to do with the 'Provident Clothing Club' also known as the 'Provie' or 'Provy'.
    The Provy man came to our house evert Thursday for his money.
    So long ago its hard to remeber.

    In the days when we had nothing we had fun.
    If tomorrow starts without me, remember I was here.

    Thanks I did a google search but all that came up was it was involved in some big court case in 1915 thats been used as case law since for insurance disputes.

    This is simply a branch of the Toxteth Coop. They expanded into other areas outside Toxteth including West Derby and Old Swan. There was also a branch opposite St Paul's Church. Nothing to do with Provident Cheques

    Yes you can still get them but the interest rates are a rip off
