75¢ was not a pittance in the 1890's. I hope that was for a pound.

What cost $.75 in 1890 would cost $17.96 in 2010.

Also, if you were to buy exactly the same products in 2010 and 1890, they would cost you $.75 and $0.03 respectively.

In the 1930s, there was Vitamin D-enhanced Schlitz Beer.

I wish it were still around: my Doctor says I need more Vitamin D
