I’m enquiring about Bertrum Mills Circus for a quiz question that’s got everybody stumped! I can’t find anything about it on the net, although my nan remembers it. The question is, “How much would you pay to see Bertrum Mills Circus in 1932?. The possible answers are…. 2s 6d, 1s 6d, 1s 3d, 2s 3d. Can you help? Regards,
Update: November 13, 2003 – The answer was indeed 1s 3d, which I went for as an “educated guess”, and out of the correct entries (put in a hat) I was the winner! I only won a CD but it was still nice to be the winner, and especially nice to find out the answer at last because it had really been bugging me! Martin Jeyes.
