Decided to re-scan the Old price lists I found in a draw a few years ago after finding some US Warehouse price lists on evil-bay.

Surrey Skates (UK Shop)









Summer 1979









Autumn 1979















US Warehouse












Who knew that the Dogtown boards came in 7 & 10 ply?

Wes Humpstan 10 ply - 22.00    [thumb]


Ten ply is the "Proline."  The 10 ply is the one I've had since BITD.  I'll see if I can find the DT ad that shows that.

Fantastic history!!!

What year?
Can then figure out then Pound vs Dollar exchange.
Although historically in 1970s $1 for each 1 British Pound approx...

Now a days I have $20 in pockets no problem.
1975-78  $20 took about 7 hours of work ($3 per hour)....
Mixed drinks Berkeley Ca. bars/pubs about $3 each...
$20 deck + wheels, tax, trucks, hardware, shipping still not cheap for me LOL....

1979 was making $2000 per month, approx. $10 per hour....
But then had apartment rent, used car payment, bridge tolls, and more.
We made due though, some fun days!!!
