An interesting look back at prices
I found this very interesting. The one thing they don't take into account is the prices of things to go in the house. In 1988 buyer a new TV was a big deal for me and when I got one in 1989 after changing jobs and moving house I paid Ã‚Â£440 for a 25" Toshiba. An older colleague once told me how in the 1960s he paid 10% of the price of his house on an automatic washing machine.
