Gypsy Creams


Woman's Own / 20th June 1969

Crikey. Sexual innuendo, all for 17 shillings* (85 new pence) a roll. Bargain! And, judging by the pattern of the wallpaper, you get eye damage for free. Can’t say fairer than that.

* Incidentally, if you’re interested, this magazine quotes an average income of ¬£20 a week for a woman, with the pound being made up of 20 shillings, or 240 pence, meaning each wallpaper roll costs about 4% of the weekly female wage.

A phrase you’d never see used these days!

I speak too little English nowadays, or I’d totally adopt the sentence.

I like the Cities of Gold type bedsit.
