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?".
