>THE JUNE MINIQUIZ NUMBER 5

Posted: June 2, 2009 in Uncategorized

>
This month’s quiz question was inspired by a post by Martin Edwards here about New Brighton. Martin has written a series of books about Harry Devlin a Liverpool lawyer, which reminded me about the New Liverpool Restaurant.


Where is the town originally called  New Liverpool, and what is the connection with a British Prime Minister, and a poker hand? 

Please send answers to thbear08@googlemail.com by midnight BST on Monday 8 June.

There is still time to challenge the leaders from Texas, Virginia, Denmark and Scotland in this marathon quiz.

    >New Liverpool? Any relation to New York or New Amsterdam?

  2. >You’re on the right track. :o)

  3. Mack says:

    >I knew something was missing from my life. One of Norman’s fiendish quizzes.

  4. Dorte H says:

    >This is not at all fair, Norman. June is for EXAMS so life is hard and cruel enough without having to try to live up to one´s reputation ;(- and my clever son is not even at home.

  5. Mack says:

    >Norman, this may be too much of a clue in which case I'll understand if you can't answer but when you say "poker had" do you mean that literally. Like, four of a kind, flush, etc.?

  6. >Trying not to give it away….Not literally a poker hand but the name of a poker hand. That connection is the difficult part. It would be much easier to get the city and its location first, the rest would follow to the poker hand quite naturally thinking crime fiction. Have I given away too much?

  7. Mack says:

    >Hmmm, I found a New Liverpool / British Prime Minister connection but I don't think it is the one you have in mind since there is no criminal poker hand element. I might be over thinking this as usual.

  8. >There is a convoluted connection. ;o) Think location.
