what cost today ?


Recommended Posts

The average salary in 1969 is listed at £1,607 wheras 2009s is listed at £37,580 so I guess that's as good an indicator as any.

thanks for that ,so working it out means ranger 2 for a week in july 1969 was 3.8% of an annual 1969 salary .A basic 3 berth boat would cost on average £700 week in july 2010 would be 5.3% of a 2009 salary ,very interesting closer than i thought it would have been , regards ken

In 1969 my wage was £22 per week,in 1970 when I started with the PO it was £21 per week,in 1977 it rose to the grand sum of £44 per week,I remember it well as it was the year I got married £44 bought a lot in those days.
