Anchor Ale: A timeline

First up, the 1930s label from Soulby, Sons & Winch. A wonderful colour combination makes for a visually stunning label. Next, a late 1940s label from Soulby, which is typical of the post war trend to simpler, rectangular labels. In 1951, Soulbys were taken over, along with Mowbray & Co. of Grantham, by J.W.Green of Luton, hence no.3. In 1952, Greens closed the Alford brewery, hence no.4. And finally Greens bought out Flower & Son of Stratford in 1954 and changed the name to Flower’s Breweries Ltd. So no.5.
