Seems like a proofreader would have been beneficial there…
@jasmineOTK I think it was meant to be funny.
@jasmineOTK ...but I agree that the lack of an apostrophe seems odd.

You'd have thought they'd had it proof-read by someone outside the sales and advertising department. That's the kind of unwittingly funny ads., church notices, etc. they used to read on [i]The News Quiz[/i], as punctuations between rounds.


Curious spelling: 'Sal[u]u[/u]sbury'. I looked it up: it is real, not a mis-spelling of Sal[u]i[/u]sbury.

Posh there, too: average house price nearly £790 000. Or is that modest for a London suburb?

@Pretzel It's spot on when you think just how dangerous electricity and electrical items were back then compared to today's safety standards.
