I have just been sent this by my Preston North End supporting friend. He isn't sure whether it is his father's or his grandfather's!

For any old boys out there what does the price of '4/6' mean?

4 shillings and sixpence surely? 54 pence in total I think.

I remember the tickets in the very early 90's used to have a hint of pink in them...

Hi Neil, sorry. I thought the quality was too good for my instant camera! s.w.

When you're arguing with an idiot, make sure the other person isn't doing the same.

Back then there were 12 pennies to a shilling. 54p is correct. Quite a lot of money back then.

Just to be pedantic ; 4 shillings and six pence might have equalled 54 pre-decimal pennies (d) but it converts to 22 and a half decimal pence (p).

God, when does the football start again ?

Were you all off to a Bay City Rollers concert after the game then?

Football being played in Barnet High Street in 1765 (in front of the Church which is behind the buildings in the middle of the picture, which include the market house, burnt down in 1888 and not replaced) showing the Red Lion (and Post Office) and the sign of the Mitre on the right (which is still there). Barnet FC had to move to alternative premises soon after this picture was taken as the then Barnet Council would not allow goal posts to be permanently erected in the High Street. . .

Sorry to link to the Mail, but want to preserve this link as lots of additional photos of Underhill I don't think have been included on this thread:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2312172/Barnet-leave-Underhill-The-Hive-106-year-stay.html

OK, here's a quiz question (presuming anyone ever reads this forum!) - name the opposition in these three games (a) presuming the Mail is right and b) bearing in mind I have no idea who the 1st team is as not mentioned and c) if you click on the link you'll see who 2 & 3 are!
