Couple of pics


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was going through a large box of broadland photos mum dad and I had taken over the last 50 years to find that the ducks and rivers had changed little, when I came across these two. the one on the left (I hope it's on the left, I hate scanners!) seems to be of a pub garden, but I can't place it. Any ideas? The pic was taken late 70s I think. The other pic needs no explanation other than how they might go about selling it!

Awwww, Dave, you burst my bubble!

Was a time when fuel prices started to rocket and outpaced the ability of the old pumps to state the correct price for the quantity sold. Was another occasion when we decimalised and thus on both occasions pumps became unsuited to retail sales. The cost of new pumps was telephone numbers to many small yards. We had eighteen boats and for us the possible retail sales quite simply prohibited the purchase of any of the modern pumps on offer at that time. Suitable second-hand pumps just did not exist back then so many yards ceased retail sales.
