Whitehaven is on the coast of Cumbria, in England. It lies between Carlisle and Barrow-in-Furness. This label is bright blue, with very minor tiny edge tears, which have to be scrutinized very closely to see, as seen in scan. It is printed on a very thin label paper, with high quality early litho printing. A beautiful early label. See another Peter Leech label for coffee on our site here.
Size: 3.25 inches round
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
