A little Social History?

By 213hardy      
Something a little different for me this morning. The house we're working in used to be an outward bound centre i think, whilst ripping out the ceilings in the attic, we found this little lot hidden away, we reckon some kids that stayed there must have had a little party and hidden the evidence in the loft. Also found was an empty packet of Jaffa cakes which cost 12p, a part copy of the News of the world dated 1961 and a little tin of Silvo. The can of Iceborg(right) cost 6 1/2p.

Lit with our working lights only, am quite pleased with this.

All C&CS welcome

Thanks for looking

I like these, I remember a lot of those bottles from when I was young, if you take them back you'll get a sixpence....Grin

Technically you've nailed the exposure, good work.

Yes, a little slice of social history. I like the fact that you've kept these simple, factual.
We go out with the local litter-pick volunteers, visiting various locations fairly regularly and it's amazing how much of a picture you can build up of the regular frequenters from their cast-offs. We know where the kids go to drink, what they drink and how they make themselves comfortable for the party; exactly how far shop staff stray from their place of work for a fag; where the drugs end up. And we've never met any of them.

Your title is most apposite and the lighting has worked a treat. And only one Newcastle Brown bottle!

Amazing. Great presentation as brings memories and starts stories forming as seen by some of these comments.
I want to know what you've done with them now...
