You must be older than me or maybe petrol was much more expensive in London when I grew up but the first I remember was going to fill my brother's Sunbeam Rapier and it being 6/7 gallon. He would take great delight in saying 3 gallons please and keep the change as he handed over a pound note. I also remember the first pints I bought were 1/11 for Youngs ordinary bitter in the public bar. In another pub we drank in on the river at Kew it was 2/6 for a pint of London Pride. How strange now to think that beer was priced differently in different bars!
Yes I do! The max I think was £10 which went a lot further 'back in them days'! Do you remember getting change from a 1/- for fish and chips? I think we've been here before, but petrol at 4/9d a gallon was also the norm 'when I were a lad'! Maybe we should have a "Memories" thread?
Still burning hydrocarbons just for fun!
