I Would BuyThat For A Penny

                 I Would Buy That For A Penny
In the 1900's to 1950's, it was amazing what you could
buy for a penny (1d), a bag of sweets was a popular buy
chewing gum, a trip on a bus, a newspaper, postage stamp, 
lemonade and many other things, children would get a penny 
for pocket money and the clever child would save it up until 
there was enough to buy something of greater value, as most
children the money would burn a hole in their pockets, so then
they would ask their parents for more money, they would
say not till the following week, that is what it was like 
back then, children respected their parents and were very 
greatful for what they had done in raising them well.
