In 1963 whilst still a JEM @ " St Vincent" I recall the ships company moaning about the rise in price of "blue liners" from 2shillings& 4pence per 100 to half a crown per hundred.( 11.5p to 12.5p to all post 71 children) happy days or is it all inflation.
Spooky thread......I've just been sorting out some stuff from the loft and found these........
As I remember they seemed good value at 51p for 300!! Mind you they gave your lungs a work out trying to drag on them. They also seemed to dry out fairly quickly too. The rolling tobacco was worse - turned to dust as soon as the air hit it.
Harry Skinters - we can't see your C: drive - you need to put the image on the web somewhere. I don't know why I still had my stamps. I had long given up smoking by 1977 and used to just give them away - for some reason I didn't that month. I do remember though that when I joined and started smoking them it gave you a sore throat so the dit about them being the factory floor sweepings might be a good one !
