They always used to take shilling coins! Petrol cost about three shillings and sixpence per gallon. and some cars didn't have a 0-60mph acceleration time because they couldn't go that fast

Those wonderful, bulbous magnifying screen on the front of 7" TV screens

The excitement of the first landing on the moon, stayed up through the night to watch that scratchy TV signal that finally said they had landed safely, then "One Small Step etc" - magic

Sitting on a lab stool chatting with the others in the lab about what we would do if war was declared as a result of the American ultimatum to Kruschev to remove the rockets from Cuba (felt almost anti-climactic when he did remove them, we had worked out one heck of a drunken orgy as a "going away party" Grin )

Bus conducturs (usually pretty lasses) who gave you a ticket from a wooden rack, then clipped them with a little "ting" from their ticket machine

The excitement of going for my first Chinese meal (made from dogs and cats the old biddies all reckoned - "Foreign Muck" )

Grey soggy cabbage and bright orange corned beef hash for school dinners - "The best days of you life", not for me they weren't!

Nostalgia and Reminiscence. I remember a long while ago when we would look back at old times and the old things which have now long gone. I wish I could bring back those times.

Putting on your coat and picking up a torch to go out to the toilet.

Little squares of newspaper threaded on a piece of string hanging on a nail.

Gas mantles. Do people still have those ?

Children being taught how to light fires. (Rather than taught not to)

The horses with nosebags pulling the dustmens cart.

Dustmen.

The rag and bone man.

Winding the gramophone.

Cameras with bellows. Oh but we still use those Wink

Dansette record players. I'm actually trying to find one to replace the one I bought for 25 way back. It was yellow.

Having and using a pocket or sheath knife, like most other kids..........essential kit if you went camping or wanted to make your own toys, catapults, whistles and bows and arrows etc.
You were taught safe knife skills by responsible adults or learned them in the scouts and guides.....you were praised as being a responsible kid for having a sharp pocket knife.....Never ever dreamed of them as weapons.....mine goes with me everywhere today.
