Get lost? Well tobacco advertising certainly did get lost eventually. Some prices for a 1oz pouch and a 2oz tin allow us to make some comparisons here again, using the Historic Inflation Calculator. This advert is from July 1967.
At 6/6, the 1oz pouch would cost £5.00 in today’s money, whereas the 2oz tin, at 13/- would cost £10.00. Looking up today’s prices for pipe tobacco, it is surprisingly close. From the online store I found, the only pipe tobacco whose name I recognised (Condor) costs £5.88 for 25g and £11.71 for a 50g pouch.Share: by
