  1. Pay and PlayBook correct Sir
  2. You forgot to add “and Victoria was on still on the frone gawd bless ‘er n no mistake guvnor”
  3. So although the amounts are different to today, on those prices if you had 2 pints a night 3 times a week or bought your mates a round you were skint come Friday. Much like now only the prices and wages have gone up. Nostalgia has a funny way of making you forget the bad stuff and remember only the good.

  14. When i got married in 1979 we looked at buying a flat in Du Cane Court it was going for £28K it was a right Marmite hole, it belonged to an elderly lady who had moved in when they were built, it must be worth nearly a £million now, I love the look of the Art Deco buildings,

  15. I reckon the four bedroom one she lived in would be well over a million now, Balham is desirable now, but still on the arse end of the Northern line! Christine Keeler (The Profumo Affair) lived their and they use it for period location filming like Poirot.
    Got my car 'removed' from the High Road outside and had to pay £175 release charge from Wandsworth Council compound, which in 1992 pretty much cleaned me out.
