I wonder how many layers of paint are there on it, Nathan.
10 Apr 2013 11:06AM
Yes when I was a child at the beach this was the other way to spend a penny.
Now even the decimal one is probably going to vanish from these shores.
Nice observation my friend.

nicely spotted , wonder how much money has passed through that piece ,
used to be a Penny to view , and a Penny to go to the loo , but due to rate of inflation they both now 20p though some places charge more for the loo than the view Sad

A good find Nathan. I don't think there would be many 20 pences in the slot here. The torags would have been at work and emptied it.
