Soon at his first composition was broadcast by the BBC, Dick, as he is known to his customers, was offered a job different from waiting, but he turned it down because he says his present work inspires him with musical ideas.

Canned Beer Will Take Less Space in Derby Day Hampers - Plan to Oust Bottles Featured Cheers! vintage food and drink Image

Canned Beer Will Take Less Space in Derby Day Hampers - Plan to Oust Bottles

Canned Beer Will Take Less Space in Derby Day Hampers - Plan to Oust Bottles .
Canned beer is to make its appearance in Derby Day hampers . The new containers, which it is hoped will soon be popular in England, are said to have many advantages over glass bottles but in no way affect the flavour of the beer . Compared with bottled beer, canned beer, when taken on a journey, saves about 35 % in space and about 40 % in weight . The can is laquered inside, and is then treated with a film of wax that prevents the beer coming into contact with the metal . Four breweries have so far adopted the canning idea in England, but 80 firms are experimenting . In America the system is already well established and there is an estimated output of 4, 000, 000 cans of beer a day .
