    Post Merseyside Development Corporation

    Was doing a bit of research, and stumbled across this in the national archives:

    http://archive.liverpool.gov.uk/dser...dsqField=RefNo

    Item 39 is a Brian Jacques cassette...I was wondering if anyone knew what it was, and what "IGF" meant.

    Cheers.

    IGF is often used for International Garden Festival?

    Ginger is probably right about IGF. The tape was produced in 1984 and the copyright is "Trekatape Ltd."
    It is a walking tour of the city center narrated by Brian Jaques. My first visit after emmigrating was in 1984 and a friend gave me a copy as a souvenier, I still have it but unfortunately don't have a player to play it on. The tourist board of the time used to rent walkman type players to tourists and let them keep the tape I think.
    My camera batteries are low,I will post a pic when I have charged them.

    I suppose you could ask him yourself...

    On Wednesday, July 9, Brian will be at Pritchards Bookshop on 54 Brows Lane in Formby, Merseyside.

    Same Brian Jaques, I knew him back in the 70's when he was a driver at Reeces in Hawke St. driving a wholesale milk delivery lorry. Also from when he had a folk club in Bold St.
    Having looked again at the catalogue entry I wonder if this is the same tape as mine. I don't remember if it had a reference to the IGF.
    I'm a few thousand miles away from Formby just now and I don't know if the bus goes that far.
