Those were the Days. What do you remember and miss from your child hood.

Post  Guest on Mon Apr 05, 2010 11:48 am

I remember Rag and bone men, could get Balloons or Gold Fish for old Clothes.

Trolly bus's, when they turned corners the poles came off the wires and the conductor had to get off the bus and replace the poles on the electric wires.

Milk Men ect use to use horse drawn carts.

Im too young to really remember much of the 70's but I have fond memories of the early 80's.

Babycham (Was I alone in thinking this was champagne for kids when I was young? lol)

The Atari 2600 :-) Technology has come a loooooong way! It's said that if we invested as much time and money into the space program as we have done in video games we'd be on Mars by now!

My mum would give me ten pence for the shop where I could buy a packet of farmer browns and loads of half penny sweets . Oh those were the days lol

It's so nice to take a walk down Memory Lane, it always seems as if the 'Old Days' were always better.

My best memory was my first very own pony, all else seems to fade into insignificance.
