Ingrid embarked on her career in 1971, when she met and later married Fritz Spiegl. Together they shared a passion for Liverpool and worked from their home to run Scouse Press, which is now recognised as Liverpool’s oldest publisher of books, historic maps and street directories of Merseyside. Publications include the famous series of Liverpool Packets and Lern Yerself Scouse. Fritz died in 2003 but Ingrid has continued, on her own, the legacy of Scouse Press.
In 2013 she had an inspired idea and produced 4000 Purple Wheelie Bins so she set about sourcing a supplier and turning her idea into reality. With her first shipment she got placements in top locations at Utility and Liverpool Museum and they were sold out within 4 weeks. She is now Trade Marking the bins, with a view to taking them nationwide. Ingrid’s creative and ‘can do’ personality shines and she is a consistent supporter of the City’s arts movement.
