Subject: RE: Lyr Req: cockney rhyming slang songs
Hootenanny, a dollar was five bob (25p) in coins of any denomination when I was a lad (when it was a sum worth giving a name to). It was indeed offically four to the quid for very many years (before my time).

Can anyone quote from Ronnie Barker's rhyming slang sermon? BTW, I see RB 'isself is now RS for marker [pen].
