Hello Trinis.. Well I will first start that my great grandmother who was born 1901 in T'dad "knew of Pan" back in her day. Her daughter Ruth Mills or Ruth Thomasos.. was told not to hang around "pan men" when she was a teenager.. Ruth was born in 1923 and she said around the age of 13, she use to run and hide to see the "pan"
This would mean that if my Great Grandmother "knew" of pan, it would date pan early than 1945. Also, Ruth said that "Spree" was not the "real pan man" but others.. As for the biscuit tins.. Ruth showed me they used to use that to "play" music on... also I know how to cook in a biscuit tin making a dish out of salt meat and rice.. she shoulded how to one day.. has she used to as a young girl. Anyway thats all I have to say on pan history.
