    Default Old Liverpool Toffee Shops

    These examples are just from London Road.

    "Noblett's" was, I think, a competing toffee manufacturer to Molly Bushell of famed Everton Toffee. This photo is either London Road, or Pembroke Place? [courtesy of LRO]

    Wignall's Toffee Shop, London Road, R.H. Wignall was the grandson of Molly Bushell, the original inventor of Everton Toffee [see advert below.]

    The original advertising paintwork on the toffee shop, at the top of London rd,was partly revealed,some years ago! It was then a butchers shop,and the London rd development agency,had some idea of renovating, at least the frontage,but nothing was done! I haven't been past it recently,so I don't know it's condition now.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for memory jog. I remember quincyg posted this series in the "Surviving Signage and Shop Adverts" thread. It looks like the same shop shown in the black & white photo above. Also London Road, I think?

    Part of the word "Noblett's" can be seen, as well as "Improved Everton Toffee"

    Photo credits to quincyg [see post thread below]

    Any idea where about in London Road this is, and what side?

    No sorry, I only remember it from quincyg's post. I haven't seen it up close myself? Looking at the B&W photo again, we could be looking up Greek Steet?

    I think Noblett's and Wignall's were competing against each other for the Everton Toffee business?

    Looking behind the George 3rd monument on this pic',you can make out the name "Colliers" which sounds familiar,though the building is different.The toffee shop was on that line of shops.Greek st,is further up on the left!
