Not quite Arkwright from "Open All Hours"; looks a bit of spiv with his cigar. Some brands have stayed true to the old label designs I see with just some minor tweaks.
Les Auld: Definitely a touch of the wide boy about him Alan, thanks for the comment.
This is Brilliant.
Les Auld: Thanks John smile
Wonderful Les. You gotta love that moustache...
Les Auld: Probably takes quite a bit of maintenance though, thanks for the comment Pamela.
