A woman's work is never done!
This woman is cleaning the stairs of the Home Office while a man reads the official announcement of the birth of Prince Charles in 1948.
This comes from an old newspaper which I found in a charity shop. Needless to say I was more interested in the other news and adverts than I was in the royal birth!
Pyrex - look at those prices! (5 shillings = 25p)
Rationing was still in place for a while after the war, and I think that BU means bread unit - each person was allowed so many units per day during rationing.
Not the health advice we would be given today!
I prefer reading the "incidentals" in these old newspapers. But here's a picture of the Royal party at the christening of Charles.
Have a great weekend.
