  1. Can we buy woolies for 90p now then?

    Presumably the ‘friends and family’ bit is Threshers Mark II, but I guess 10% is 10%.

  2. In the summer of 1951, I was hitch-hiking around the country. For several days, I was in the vicinity of Tucson, AZ and, walking down a city street one day, saw a sign in a Woolworth’s:

    39 cents BREAKFAST 39 cents
    2 eggs—any style
    buttered toast

    That was a bargain; such a breakfast would have normally been about 60 cents, even a bit more.

    I went in, took a seat at the (crowded) counter, and ordered the “39-cent special.”

    While waiting, I watched the cook making many such breakfasts. Again and again, I saw her crack but a single egg into the small pans she was using. It was obvious: they were using “double-yolkers!”

    When I was served, I explained my observation to the waitress–rather quietly. She explained to me, “It really is two eggs—they just come in one shell.” I told her: “Then the box of a dozen double-yolkers should say ’24 eggs,’ shouldn’t it?”

    She said, “Excuse me a minute,” and walked away. When she returned, she’d brought another order, including toast. I suppose she was somewhat grateful that I hadn’t alerted the other patrons to the dodge.

    As a side note, on the outskirts of town was a large roadside produce stand. Superb large cantelopes were “5 cents, 6 for a quarter.” I asked the guy whether I could pay for 6, store them in the Coca-Cola cooler, and come back for them time to time. He said “Sure,” and that’s what I did. The “good ol’ days” really were!
