Suddenly thought about things we (slightly) older ones used to take for granted, but which no longer are around.

Carbon paper
The TV repair man
TV rental companies (Radio Rentals)
Parking lights for cars - white to the front, red to the rear and had to be hooked over the drivers side window. Plugged into the ciggy lighter.

Any more...

Valves that warmed the room when you switched the radio on,

Radiograms that looked like fine pieces of furniture

Shirts with detachable collars, when I started out I had one shirt and 6 collars (enough for a week at work), the really naff collars were made of "Celluloid" and sweated like the devil

Manual wipers on the car, but before my driving days! Bell bottom trousers and winkle pickers! Hair styles that made you look like a giant poodle! Tongue Blackpool beach packed with day trippers. orange jubilees (large frozen orange flavoured). Going to the sweet shop with sixpence and coming out with change! Being able to go out and play when you were 5 years old without the fear of getting snatched by some pervert or maniacTongue God, it just goes on! Smile Great days never to ever come back.
