The history of this famous English brewer goes back to the 19th Century - to1837 - when James Watney became a partner in the Stag Brewery of Pimlico. As with many companies, it evolved over the years, taking on Combe Delafield and Co, and Reid and Co. in 1898. The respective sons took over from fathers down the years with the final merger in 1958 when Watney, Combe, Reid & Co Ltd joined with Mann, Crossman & Paulin Ltd. Hence the name we are all so familiar with - Watney Mann. This business merged with Grand Metropolitan Hotels in 1972 and closed in 1979.
The TK replaced the S type Bedford truck in 1959 and was used extensively as the ideal light truck of the era, right into the 1970s. It was very versatile and came in a variety of formats, including the open backed version, which we present complete with kegs of Watney's.
