    I have a copy of The Schoolboy’s Science Pocket Book from 1960. Bet there wasn’t a Schoolgirl’s…

    Openings for Scientists section:

    When you get your qualifications….you can expect to be able to start in industry or research at a salary of £500-£700 per year….Salaries for top men in industry can be very high indeed….They can reach about £2,500 per annum.

    I have an 1898 copy of the slightly more serious “Cobbett’s Advice to Young Men and (incidentally) to Young Women, in the middle and higher ranks of life: in a series of letters addressed to a Youth, a Bachelor, a Lover, a Husband, a Father, a Citizen or a Subject.”
