I saw this in the window of our local Oxfam bookshop and I knew that I had to add it to my small collection of London guide books. For the very reasonable price of £3.99, London on a £1 a Day was mine.
It was published in 1965, back in the days of pre-decimal currency. Pounds, shillings and pence.
And I have to say it's a hoot!
I've concluded that Betty James was an out an out snob and some of her opinions seem quite shocking in today's climate of political correctness.
But no matter, I bought it for the novelty value alone.
How about you? Do you venture in to your local second-hand bookshop? What sort of titles might catch your eye?
