A Glass from the Past

A while ago I received a piece of Walton history in the form of a photograph of a beer glass.

Albion glass 3It was sent to me by Roger Wade (the gent in the photograph) asking if I could throw any light on the engraved greeting on the glass, which had been a Christmas gift to his grandfather in 1924.

You will see that it mentions P F Cole of The Albion Hotel, who I can only assume was the licensee or manager at that time (although he is not listed on the Pub History.com web site). Albion glass 2

Roger’s grandfather’s name was Matthew Roger Wade and he was a coastguard in the town at that time. No doubt The Albion was his ‘local’.

Does this mean anything to anyone?
