  • Town Diary for January 2000

    Market Basket 
    Below are some prices on a few items sold at various establishments in the town of
    Barkhamsted during the month of January 2000.  These prices were being charged
    during the month of January, however there may have been price variation before
    and after the day we did this.  We thought it would be interesting to periodically
    select a few items like this and "freeze them in history".  It might be fun to check
    back here in a few decades and see what was being sold and for how much.

    1) Brass Horse Cafe, Route 44, Barkhamsted 
            $1.75 -  for a draft beer.
