Stephen Killick’s Truman’s Beer Labels
After I published my tiny collection of Old Truman’s Beer Labels last week, I was thrilled to hear from Stephen Killick in Australia who collected more than one hundred and fifty Truman’s Beer labels as a child – all issued between 1956 and 1960 – and placed them in scrapbooks.
Born in Poplar, Stephen began collecting at the age of nine and continued until the age of sixteen when he became a Mod. Stephen’s father used to deliver sugar to the Truman’s Brewery in Brick Lane and, whenever Stephen went along with him, the brewers gave him labels. Later, when the family moved out to Essex, Stephen collected beer and wine labels from other breweries and even ventured into cheese labels too, but these magnificent Truman’s Beer labels remain his first love.
