There weren't any King Edward potatoes them. They date from 1902.
The comments system seems to have gone wrong.

that is an excellent way to keep the rich rich. The properties elderly own were bought for reasonable prices, seems unfair to a younger generation

What a stupid remark! It's all comparative - our house cost 3,500 in 1972 at a time when my husband was earning about 30 pw, if I remember rightly, and I was not working. At that time, a wife could not be part of the mortgage.

It was more costly in real terms to own a property 30-40 years ago than it is today. Wages were very low even taking account of inflation in the Seventies and beyond and people had nothing! Most didn't even have a landline in their homes as they couldn't afford one. Contrast that with today! When young people spend vast sums on holidays, going out, homes, cars, phones, kids, dogs, and constant partying.
