Prices in 1904 Dublin

the 1904 conversion rate was one pound = US$5.00 (equals 25 French francs = 25 Austrian crowns = 15-20? Italian lira)

with inflation, US1904 $5 has become US2014 $130 (US1922 $10)

one guinea = one pound plus one shilling = 21 shillings
one pound = 20 shillings = 240 pence
one crown = 5 shillings = 60 pence
one florin = two shillings = 24 pence
one shilling = one bob = one bar = 12 pence
one tanner = 6 pence
so a shilling then bought about as much as $6.50 does now

table of 1911 diets among Dublin's poor

twopence: a shave
threepence: dock porter at Newhaven
1/0: cheap whore
1/6: dental extraction; watch cleaning
2/0: mend broken statue; English lesson in Paris
3/0: HELY's men, per day (all or one???)
3/4: average Parisian workman
7/0: Eveline's weekly wages at the Stores
10/0: year's maintenance on grave; Bella's whores
12/6: Milly's weekly pay as photo girl
13/9: Irish Times payment for racer interview
15/0: Dublin clerk per week
18/0: Ormond barmaid's weekly pay
1/0/0: one month's wages for deck boy
1/0/0: Homestead payment for stories
1/1/0: Titbits payment per column; gyn exam
1/4/0: dockworker per 60-hour week
1/13/4: Stannie's starting weekly pay with Trieste Berlitz
1/15: James Berlitz pay in 1905
2/0/0: typical ad commission for Bloom
2/12/0: good Paris cook, per month
3/12/0: what Deasy pays Stephen (monthly or biweekly?)
5/5/0: Rumbold's charge for hanging
6/0/0: 19yo Picasso's monthly contract with Manyac, Paris 1900
6/0/0: yearly wage for maid?; monthly wage for valet
7/10/0: monthly wage from Berlitz
12/0/0: Fortnightly Review payment for Ibsen review
12/10/0: monthly wage at Roman bank? (250 lira)
50/0/0: organist, per year
150/0/0: yearly salary at Rome bank [L2-140]
150/0/0: customs official Michael Healy per year

assuming a six day week:
Driscoll: 1/8 (hard to imagine but '1900 House' agrees)
deck boy: 5/0
Eveline = 7/0
Milly = 12/6
Paris cook: 13/0
Dublin clerk: 15/0
HELY's = 18/0
barmaid = 18/0
organist = 19/3
dockworker = 24/0
valet, Picasso = 30/0
Stannie = 33/4
James = 35/0
Berlitz = 37/6
Rome bank = 62/6?
Stephen = 18/0 or 36/0
Clearly, Corley thinks Deasy's job is above him, and sandwichman is beneath him, so on this basis 36/0 seems more likely (SD has a degree, after all)

gold one pound = sovereign
gold half-pound = half-sovereign
silver five shilling = crown
silver 2/6 = half-crown
copper 2/0 = florin
silver shilling
silver sixpence = tanner
silver fourpence = groat or joey
silver threepence
bronze penny = wing
bronze halfpenny = make
bronze 1/4 penny = farthing
