Historic records published online for the first time today have revealed the prices of central London properties back in 1910 - and they're certainly a bargain by today's standards.

The records, taken from then Chancellor of the Exchequer David Lloyd George's national land survey, have been digitised by the website ancestry.co.uk, and show valuations of some of the capital's most historic landmarks, as well as the average prices in its well-known central areas.

While the Bank of England was valued at a modest £110,000, the city's historic law court, the Old Bailey, was even more surprisingly worth just £6,000.

As for residential prices, the average central London buyer would have paid £14,000 for a property back in 1910, compared to £430,500 in today's market. A house in Fleet Street would have set you back around £25,000, while buyers today could expect to pay an average of £1.2 million.
