Someone asked me about old money – they didn’t know (how could they – too young) about 12d in a shilling, or 10s., or that 20s. made a pound (£1.00). Or that once upon a time there was a 10 shilling note, or half-a-crown, a sixpenny piece, or 3d, or a ha’-penny, or a farthing or a threepenny bit. And what about a Guinea? That was smart. Learning tables hasn’t changed though – that’s useful.
Ho – Hum!
