According to Margaret Dixon (Isaac Cundall's Grand Daughter):

Isaac Cundall was a very smart man, and he spoilt his grand daughter Margaret.
He never called her Margaret, she always got called Jim (why, she doesn't know).

Margaret has a bottle from when Isaac was in partnership with Fred Ames at the Mineral Water Works.    It is an old one with a marble in the neck at the top of the bottle, and there was a certain way to hold the bottle to pour the pop out.    Margaret also gave Tom (Tom Cundall Baker) a bottle.

She can remember years ago that Isaac had blue and white pint pots in the pub.    Also there were coal fires and, in the winter time, the men in the top room at the pub used to put the poker in the fire and get it hot and put it into their beer to warm it.    Isaac would not let women go in the rooms of the pub.    He used to say it's a man's pub, but he let women go in the living room and have a drink in there.
