Bye bye Rutland


40 years since the last day of Rutland.  Who'd have thought it!
3½ p to send a letter - who'd have thought it!

  1. I can remember the damn price of stamps then - who'd have thought that?! But I can't tell you what they cost now - more than ten bob, that's for sure. Rutland's a lovely county - it still has the signs up, so I guess it still exists in folks' minds. And a good TV station, I seem to recall.

    1. After posting this, I was watching something on tv and they said the person lived in Rutland - so it's good to know it's still there.

  2. Stamps here have gone up about 500% since the 1970s. Nice first day cover (I think that's the term).
