It had the price marked in the corner.
Two shillings and sixpence :-(

Mine has the 2/6 struck through at 75p written in.
What gets me is that it was 4 years after decimalisation.

Mine has £2.50 written on it.
I think you are only a year older than me. That's some crazy inflation. I don't understand why they were doing this four years after decimilisation.

I just remembered that it was crossed out.

Even so, it was bloody expensive.

When my grandmother died, I had to help clear out her flat.

She'd collected huge stacks of newspapers with half-finished crosswords.

And knicker elastic. About half a mile of the stuff. She used to cut it off from the top of her tights before she threw them away, because it "might come in useful some day".
