Once a week, we will be taking you back to the 1960s with a dip into Kingston Council's Heritage Advent Calendar.

1 December

In 1964 the adult train fare to see the West End Illuminations from Kingston was 4/6 or 4s 6d, which if converted to decimal currency would have been 22 and a half pence (Surrey Comet, 19 December 1964). To join us as we countdown to Christmas and celebrate Kingston's rich heritage, follow our advent calendar on Facebook (Kingston Museum and History Centre) and Twitter (@KingstonMuseum).
