A silver Sixpence

Thinking about the sixpence that Captain Detector found on the beach yesterday.  What would it have bought way back then?

24 aniseed balls from the sweet shop if my memory serves me correctly, and 6 of those pallid pastel lollies that i liked.   And perhaps 3 sherbert dabs.  I think they were tuppence.

I am frozen with my arthritis - just getting out of a chair is so exhausting and painful.  I won't be going up to London next week.  And, if they can't get this sorted out, well, I don't like to think about it.

My travelling days will be over for sure.
