Larmouth & Co Codd bottle, re-used by N. Paul

Larmouth & Co (of Hackney), Reliance patent Codd bottle, made by Dan Rylands of Barnsely. It is embossed ‘This bottle is the property of Larmouth & Co, No deposit charged’. When the firm went bankrupt, the stock of bottles was purchased by Nicholas Paul (of St Pancras), who sand-blasted their name over Larmouth’s. The name of N. Paul & Co has been sand-blasted on both sides. Paul also bought up bankrupt bottle stock from the Cohen Brothers of Camberwell (dissolved 1892). This bottle, like others of Paul’s, may have been re-used by YABC (the Yarmouth Aerated Beverage Company) illegally.
