Back In The Day

Cheap by today's standards, but might have been a days wages back then. I'm 55 and I remember when penny candy was penny candy and 50 cents allowance was like 5 dollars today. Bottle of soda was only 10 cents and a candy bar was 5 cents and this was back in the late sixties early seventies.

$1.00 in 1928 had the same buying power as $13.96 in 2017.

$13.96 x 3.00 = $41.88

A round trip bus fare from Salisbury to Baltimore is about $78, plus tax.

Driving, it should cost under $20 in gas and 4 bucks for the bridge toll.

But there's nothing like riding a train.
