Judgement for the case Chapelton v Barry UDC

 deck chairs were advertised at a certain price for hire and a man hired one, and was given a ticket with conditions of hire written on the back. P had no idea that there were terms or conditions written on them. The court held that the advertisement was an offer and therefore the conditions on the ticket were irrelevant since the contract had already come into force when he was given the ticket (which was really a receipt). The object of giving the ticket had been to evidence the payment that had been made for the deck chairs for the attendant: NOT to add to the original contract.
