Property Advert of the Week: Hillcrest Homesites - Liverpool region (1966)

This week, we head to Liverpool where 895 pounds bought you a block of land in 1966. The change to dollars and cents had been made but decided to advertise with the old currency. It was legal to do so until 1968. The details suggest that home sites were at Chipping Norton and/or Moorebank. According to the RBA Inflation calculator, it was equivalent to spending $22 500 today.
