Pair of General Porters' brass badges with buckle-on armbands from the City of Liverpool (UK) depicting the city's emblem, known as the Liver Bird. These porters probably worked at Liverpool Docks. Like General and Luggage porters, Out Porters were licensed by the City Authorities and were responsible for the carrying of luggage and goods to and from the boundaries of the three “main line” stations in Liverpool, taking over from the railway employed porters. Liverpool Lime Street (L&NWR), Liverpool Central (CLC. Midland, Great Central and Great Northern) and Liverpool Exchange (L&YR). These stations would have all had Out Porters, as would the Liverpool Riverside station of the Mersey Docks & Harbour Board. Each Out Porter was allocated a licence number. Date early 1900s.
Measurements of the brass badge width 5.5 x length 8.5 cm.
Brass in good condition. Leather straps with some worn areas.
