The High Street stores promised unbeatable value. Each of our date galleries includes a quiz which invites you to guess how much a basket of items cost at that time.
This quiz tracks the same item across 1982, 1988, 1998 and 2008.
For the technically minded the page uses a CSS image sprite to swap the image of the shopping bag for the item's price ticket when you hover over it. Why not give it a go?
