Re: Petrol price in January 1968
Billy Barratt Tweed St. I remember little Jimmy who worked there too. The redifusion radio was always on! Around 1953/4 it was a shilling for short back n sides for us kids. Jars of Brylcream and Brilliantine on sale. Razor blades and Erasmus alum stick for cut faces! After he gave it all up due to a stomach problem (hairball) moving to Hall Rd, Tony Leake took it on. 7/6d for a restyle plus half a can of Cossack lacquer by evening appointment only! Great days.
