    Require a website for UK price comparison
    Hiya, very new to this site which looks brill... I need to find somewhere that can tell me prices in 1985 in the UK (prices of bread, milk, beer, newspapers etc etc) so that I can use the information for a birthday book that I am composing for someone. I would really appreciate someone telling where I can find these price comparisons as I've been looking on the net for sometime and cannot find what I want.

    Anyone out there to tell me please? Many thanks

    Try searching local newspaper archives for back issues. The ads in the paper should help you.
