The Snap Tin according to the sign. The T in Tin is in the shape of a pickaxe, suggesting a mining connection, and sure enough - http://www.miningheritage.co.uk/snap-tin/. I'd never heard of that.

Bait, snap, scran (and probably others) are fairly widely used colloquial terms for lunch in many communities. (I was brought up in a mainly agricultural area where scran and bait were both commonly used.) Preference varies from area to area. Always good to see local traditions/customs being recognised.

The word I have always used is "baggin." I learnt it when living on a farm in North Staffordshire as a child but think it is quite common in Lancashire and Yorkshire as well.

My dad was born and brought up in Ashton under Lyne and always referred to his 'Snap Tin'.

Hope the venture is a success. I will definitely be taking a look. Good luck.

The north east have their bait box, in Bradford they had their "jock"tins and I would suppose Cheshire would have a hamper. ;)
