I think the 70th anniversary was 1958.
And, as far as I know, there isn't a London Borough of Moore or Campbell.

Abby,

Aren't you barred from competing on the grounds that you have already won a prize?

When Chris says a comic novel, does he mean a graphic novel or a humorous one?

Probably. But I donít know the fine print, because even though I won, I was unable to accept, because do to the nature of my work I am unable to give out my address.

However, the question and the prize on this one has me so intrigued, that if I won and am able to get the exceptionally cool prize, which also happens to be the answer, that I may just have to drive up to Baltimore and pick it up.

Don't tell Chris, but I've been googling for hours and still don't have a clue.

There are a handful of London boroughs that could be surnames, but even that clue didn't help.

I think Chris may be running out of postcards...

Dusty Miller over at JtR Forums got the correct answer.

The comic novel is I'm All Right Jack by Alan Hackney, published in the UK in 1958 and made into a successful film starring Peter Sellers and Ian Carmichael two years later.



Meanwhile the answer I was looking for about the "other" prison in Liverpool other than Walton Prison is Kirkdale Prison, which saw a number of hangings carried out by Calcroft and other famous executioners. Colin B. Leonard on Facebook correctly answered the question and will be receiving a copy of The Treadmill and the Rope: A History of Kirkdale Prison by Tod Sloane (1988).

Cheers

Chris
