Boak & Bailey's Beer Blog - Writing about beer and pubs since 2007 (http://boakandbailey.com)
“Our local carters working the [Manchester] warehouses seldom took food with them. Public houses, avid for trade, put on some kind of a free snack with their 1½d ‘carters’ pints’. Certain pubs went further and supplied potato pie, cheese and pickles, a pint of beer and a piece of thick twist tobacco — all for 4½d. A carter had to prove his bona fides, though, by bearing a whip in hand or around his neck.”Robert Roberts,*The Classic Slum: Salford life in the first quarter of the century, Penguin, 1971, repr. 1974.
