Does anyone have a source for somthing I have heard and read, I can't
recall where I read it. That the British Pound was worth $50 American
dollars in the late 1870's during the era of the American railroad
expansion. This seems a little hard to believe.
>> I wasn't sure if you would 'deign' to read my posts since I am a mere female, but American currency had barely been issued in the 1870s and its value varied from county to county and state to state and territory to territory.
