Back to the 50's Part 2

(Continued from yesterday).

How many of these do you remember?

Coca Cola in bottles.

Choo Choo Bars and Fags. (That word had no other meaning then.)

Home milk delivery before glass bottles (with tinfoil tops ) when the milkman filled your Billy.

LP's & 45 RPM records.

78 RPM records!

Adding Machines.


Do you remember a time when . . .

Decisions were made by going 'Eeny-meeny-miney-moe'?
'Race issue' meant arguing about who ran the fastest? 
Catching tadpoles could happily occupy an entire day?

It wasn't odd to have two or three 'Best Friends'?

The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was 'chickenpox'?

Having a weapon in school meant being caught with a shanghai?

Playing war with pretend guns but "real" wooden swords.

Cigarette cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle?


Taking drugs meant being given half of one of mum's Bex tablets for a headache.

Lighting a whole row of Tom Thumbs and throwing them at your mate's feet, was the ultimate weapon.

If you can remember most or all of these, then you have lived!!!!!!!

Pass this on to anyone who may need a break from their 'grown-up' life.
