Mail came twice as day, milk as delivered to the door, the chimney sweep made a mess, homes were dangerous what with all those electrical gadgets all sourced from one adaptor plug. You made do with one dustbin - little packaging waste - which was empties once per week.
There were mods and rockers and Saturday morning pictures. Also Wimpy Bars and Berni Inns. You could play in the streets, using jump0ers as goal posts though there were lots of street games I didn't know.
Remember Sindy Dolls and Gaytime biscuits? I remember the run up to Bonfire night being more fun the night itself. I also remember the national Anthem at the end of a cinema programme, though I was anti-monarchist enough to leave just before it.
I remember the Parker 51 pen - mine got stolen.
Especially good was the praise of creative teachers who got you through the basics but who also gave time to lots of other stuff and made learning fun. Are you listening, Michael Gove?
It bought back so many memories i would reccomend ththe books to any age group.
