Tuition Fees: £24 16/-

Tuition Fees

Another item of Trix Cooke’s sent in by Barbara Taylor. This is an invoice dated 22nd December 1950 for payment of £24 16/-.

If you’re interested in what that amount of money represents you can plug it into the National Archives currency converter to find out that £24 16/- is equivalent to 17 days wages for a builder or five stone of wool!
