Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner....


This is the 50 year old biscuit tin I keep the chocolate digestives in - obviously Mother never claimed the 1/6 deposit - that is 1 shilling 6 pence - about 7 New Pence for youngsters.

Two observations:
When hefty deposits driven by the market were charged on tins, there was a sensible incentive to recycle or reuse.
How London has changed - what would a biscuit tin of common London sights look like now?




Gor'Blimey! Not a Burkah in sight! Gotta' love those pearlys though.
