Blue Peter, Alvaston
The Blue Peter at Alvaston opened January 1935. It was the first of three pubs to be opened in Derby using identical designs. They were operated by Offilers, the Derby brewer which later became part of Bass. The other pubs sharing the same art deco style design, resembling ocean liners, are The Blue Boy at Chaddeston which opened Jan 1936 and The Blue Pool at Sunnyhill (now a Tesco Express) which opened in May 1936.
