Snowdonia: National Park Guide (Her Majesty’s Stationery Office, 1958)

Introduced by Darren Bloodworth of C Arden Booksellers, Hay-on-Wye

A new theme of interesting items found in books.

This receipt was found in a nice copy of a 1950s guide to Snowdonia National Park, published by the HMSO.

I thought it was charming to see the prices and how the customer was given a half penny in change.
