Was that a 'shiny sixpence' Snowshoes ? Many people referred to a sixpence as a 'shiny sixpence' , do you remember that ?
We could do a lot with a sixpence. A bag of chips, a swap for a tooth, (tooth fairy), 6d block of Cadbury's Dairy Milk or 2 x 3d blocks or 6 x 1d ones, 2 x bags of Golden Wonder Crips, or 2d change on a bag of Smith's crisps, a bottle of Coca-Cola, and 2 loose cigarettes (Park Drive).
For those who don't know ,work it out.
2 x 6d = 12d = 1 shilling = today's 5p.
No fatalities yesterday, which is pleasing to know.
