Sent in fun, to brighten up a grey Monday . . .
I have just put up some interesting extracts on my website from a
1920 WBF catalogue. Among other things, there is a table showing
weights and prices for various peals of 8. The price for a 10 1/2 cwt
eight, including bells, frame, fittings and installation (but not
transport) is £910.
Oh that such prices ruled today. "I'd like a couple of peals of 8,
please". "Certainly sir. Will you be writing a cheque, or would you
like to pop them on your credit card?".
