    Gibson's was [Edit: yay!] 9 Broad Street, which means it is this corner here (only the slope of Patrick Street remains!): Streetview

    When did Lipton's add "By Appointment"? . Before 1896, anyhow. This page has an 1896 ad with By Appontment, but also an 1893 ad without it.

    Here's a large 1892 ad.. I think this would mention the royal appointment if it had happened.

    "On 28th February 1895, however, his greatest prize to date came to him at long last - the Royal Warrant as purveyor of tea to Her Majesty Queen Victoria." Presumably they would remove the warrant from ads and windows after the death of the Queen in 1901?

    The Tyler's shop was operated by John Kennedy and his brothers, here in the 1901 census. WRONG! see below...

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] Niall, where are you getting the Kennedy Brothers from? Were they not Broad Street in Cork? (Please excuse the dangling preposition) Or had they moved on to Cork by 1901 and I've just missed something in your comments above?

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] Grand thanks! Am madly searching in online newspapers for Tyler & Sons news or ads for 1896 but nothing so far... (at least there is, but it's all about the 7 branches in and around Dublin)

    A wonderful photo Carol. Tylers was still in business in Waterford up until the late 70's or early 80's I believe although their premises was on the Quay. Liptons was taken over in later years by the L & N Tea Company and was still there in the early 1970's. Tylers shop on the Quay catalogue.nli.ie/Record/P_WP_2612/Image?lookfor=http://ww...
