Putting together scraps of old bills found in the Black Creek ravine. Mrs. Emily Coggon helps Patrol Sgt. Cyril Barnes and Inspector Tom Cooke while her sons Kirk; 6, and Neil, 5, watch. Kirk is one of the eight children who found the money three months ago, $2,960 in bills from the 1930s. It’s not been claimed, and it’ll be divided among the youngsters. Kirk’s going to buy a bicycle.
$2,976.00 in 1971 would be worth $18,000.00 today!
