    I noticed that too! Considering Britain wasnt decimal in 1967 I suspect its a shocking £55 which wasnt exactly an offer :hehe:

    Plasturton Avenue Cardiff 1912 and not a car in sight, what a difference the next 107 years would bring, in 2019 the roadsides are full of cars and cars park on the verges in the centre of the road
