Everyone who matters in the world of football knows Everton Football Club are our city's first club. Those who don't know, don't matter.
We know too our nickname "The Toffees" comes from Mother Noblett's Toffee Shop that was located not far from Everton Brow in the nineteenth century.
Amazingly, there is a photograph of the shop taken some time during that century. We show it here. So far as we know it is the earliest photo taken of that illustrious and history-making establishment.
Is there anybody out there who knows the precise date of the photograph and who took it?
One of the club traditions we at Blue Kipper love is when the Toffee Lady mascot walks around the ground throwing toffees into the crowd. Make the most of it because it's only a matter of time before the HSE Gestapo put a stop to it.
