But in those days you could only get a mortgage based on the husbands wage, they were hard to get, try getting a house mortgage now based on one wage. You had to put down a 10% deposit as a first time buyer. Mortgage interests rates were always in double figures.Not the artificial low rates now. Income tax was a lot higher. Purchase tax was 20% on all goods.
There wasn’t as many hand outs to make up wages as now.
Yeh, we had it easy.
