Interesting historical information  
Browsing through a load of saved bookmarks I found this$file/Policing%20and%20living%20costs%20in%201900.pdf

It's a list of what things cost, from a pint of beer to a gold pocket watch or a bicycle, and what people were, on average paid, from a mill worker to a police constable to a music hall performer, in 1900 in Manchester.

I though it might be of interest to anybody writing things about the turn of the last century.
