When Whisky was 3s 6d a bottle...

People keep going on about rising prices and about how wonderful life was in the old days when things were cheap.

Of course things were cheap, and Iv'e been digging up some facts about how much or how little things cost in 1900.

That was when tea cost 1s 4.5d per Ib., Danish butter 1s 2d per Ib., Rump steak 11d per Ib., and a leg of mutton 9d per Ib. A 4Ib loaf cost 3d and 7Ib of flour was 9.5b.

Tobacco was 3d an ounce, or 4d for better quality, a good blend of Scotch whisky 3s 6d and a bottle of three star brandy 5s 11d.

But what of the other side of the coin? A well-trained housemaid was well pleased with a wage of 7s a week with one day off, and girls straight from school were taken for training under a cook-general at a little over £2 A YEAR!
