Joe_F BS: uk pre decimal money (49) RE: BS: uk pre decimal money 05 Jul 19


When I was in Britain (1958-1959), one still had the amusement of calculating the tip on a restaurant bill of 2 pounds, 7 shillings, & fourpence, and, when traveling, of heavy pocketfuls of pennies, of which a pay phone needed four. The pennies & halfpennies were not only large but remarkably long-lived; ones with Queen Victoria on them were not uncommon.
