The prices may look good but in 1961 I had finished my apprentaship in Lairds and was then on 11 a week as a tradesman. The Liverpool Echo was 2d or 2 and a half d. Thats old money not this new funny mnoney we have now.

Yes, using the average earnings comparison, a pint of bitter costing 1s.5d would cost 2.56 now, so reasonably comparable.
What was your trade at Laird's; my dad worked there all his life, did a 5 year apprenticeship.

For those too young to know about money before Decimalisation

d stands for penny or pence

1 farthing
1 halfpenny = 2 farthings
1d penny = 2 halfpenny
3d pennies (known as thripny bit or thripny joey) = 3pennies
6d pennies (known as a tanner) = 6 pennies
12d pennies ( known as a shilling or a bob) = 12 pennies
24d pennies (known as 2 bob or a florin) = 24 pennies
30d pennies (known as half a crown or a half dollar) = 30 pennies
120d pennies (known as 10 bob note) = 120 pennies
240d pennies (known as a pound note} = 240 pennies


other notes same as today

Anyone interested and I'll try to send photos of the coins and noes measured against a ruler

Going by the size of 1d ( one penny) which was about 2 inches in diameter and half crown slightly larger it is no wonder trousers and jackets always got holes in the pockets

That's 8p for a "Small Bottle" of Carlsberg

The only draught beers are bitter at about 4p and Mild at about 3p a Half Pint.
