Even better, it’s about Tetley Mild. Or rather, Milds. Back then they brewed three. Or four.

This is how they looked in the Brewhouse:

I’m amazed that they were brewing something as strong as X2 in 1920. It’s a proper full-strength Mild, reminiscent of a pre-WW I London X Ale.
I’m pretty sure F (which I think stands for Family Ale) was a bottled Mild. But it’s far too weak to be Special Mild Ale because it cost the same as Guinness Stout. It has to be the strongest Mild, X2.
