Manchester Zippo

Living in the City of Manchester, I thought it would be an idea to try to get some Zippos with my home town. These are the ones that I have found so far.

1996 Boddingtons Brewery 1995 HMS Manchester 1989 (I) HMS Manchester

Boddingtons "Strangeways" brewery is two minutes walk from where I work. For many years the beer was advertised as "The Cream Of Manchester". Although Boddingtons is still produced, the Manchester Brewery closed in 2005 and has recently been demolished.

The second and third lighters are from HMS Manchester and I thought they were close enough to add to the collection.
