    So that's why the thread was bumped up - because of the coronavirus!

    I am certain that Alpine came from the (Coop) milkman, along with Sunquik orange juice.

    I recall fondly all the Bottles of Pop the Milkman used to bring and tyou could re-trade in the next (and all this was before Pop became un-healthy)!!

    Amazingly talking of Op I was siftting through Family Pics last night and old Paper-work of Newspapers with old Family News in them and discovered a Paper from generations back advertising Tizer ..................... in wait for it!!!

    1933 ... and I was like wow, wow, wow .... it's so old!!

    Worse than that, it would most probably fail the emission test.

    I remember the orange juice the milkman would deliver. It came in the same glass pint bottles as the milk, or at least the stuff our milkie sold did. We didn't have it that often, Christmas being one time we would usually order one or two bottles.

    I actually did one evening's work for Corona back in the late 60s. Going round knocking on doors asking if people wanted pop delivered.
    It actually paid OK IIRC. It was (again IIRC) five bob a "lead". The driver of the lorry then took over the paperwork. I made thirty bob in about three hours.
    It was a right pain to get to the depot though from where I lived and it was Winter.
