I'm always amazed at all the clothes they wore in those days. Imagine the state of them after a day's playing! Lots of detail, and I do like the falling-over lampost.

Wonderful image and all it needs to what I think is to finish it of is someone (a woman with a scarf around her head) scrubbing the step a little further down the street. I must say though that you must have been very lucky to have no one else in modern clothing standing around. Very nice indeed and well worth putting up. Smile

You have gone about this capture so thoughtfully, Lesley, and brought it off to perfection IMHO: the presentation is so in keeping and the arrangement of the different elements within the frame just right.
Could be an image from aeons back.
Very well done.
Ronnie.

Blimey, Lesley, although we didn't quite dress like this when I were a lad, skipping was popular, and I can remember we had gas lamps almost identical to this in our neighbourhood! Wink A super capture, and your processing really enhances the scene too Smile

Down by the river, down by the sea,
Johnny broke a bottle and blamed it on me.
I told ma, ma told pa,
Johnny got a spanking so ha ha ha.

How many spankings did Johnny get?
1, 2, 3....


Excellent image, excellent olde worlde presentation, Lesley.

Great setting - and the sepia is so right - so many skipping songs will just be lost unless this generations starts to skip.

No kids don't skip any more Lesley, they prefer computer/Ipad/TV instead.
I love the treatment here.

Awww...I do love this, Ccat, as you know Smile

The processing is so perfect to take us back to a time long forgotten by most.

By the way, you asked me for a good title and I couldn't come up with one. I'm glad I couldn't 'cos yours is perfect!
