  Gordon Monks This must be around 1968; I remember Stuyvesant 100s (luxury length) were 5/- for 20 – very expensive!

  Rochdale Past, Present & Future.after decimalisation that though, was it 12 pennys to a shilling, thay would be 46 pennies? glad I wasn’t around or at least responsable when that happened, I still don’t get it is a shilling 5p or 12 pennies lol

 Gordon Monks Before decimalisation (February 1971) 12 pennies to the shilling (now 5p), therefore 3/10 = 46d; for comparison, 48d = 4/- = 20p.

  Mark Conroy Marvellous picture. But it rams home yet another glowing example of our woefully inept council. Dual carriageway all the way through. And what did our wonderful council do to improve traffic flow?? That’s right, made it single file carriageway right up to the motorway. Genius.
