Great topic idea but wonder if it would be better to divide into 'sub topics' such as, for example 'household items, foods, toys, fashions etc

Just a suggestion.

I remember most of the things that have been posted from my childhood during the 1960s in Warwick street .Also so many pubs still have horse brasses and flying ducks in their bars, an example is The Fox and Hounds in Barnston Who also had a Washing Pulley,stone hot water bottles and black leaded range in their main Lounge area, which looked just like our Kitchen in Warwick street even down to the red tiled floor by the bar

We all seem to like them, but the French don't. They banned the sale of them in France. Health and Safety reasons ! raftl What they really meant was, we want to sell our prams and not yours.

"" France has banned Silver Cross prams from being sold in their shops, in what the firm’s owner has described as a blatant example of European Union free trade rules being flouted ""

Remember when we had housewives who cooked, washed, ironed, shopped, hoovered, put the kettle on, made the beds, washed the windows and the doorstep, swept the yard, took kids to school, bandaged knees, smacked bums/legs, attended to husbands needs if she didn't have a headache, managed the budget etc etc.

Hi Granny, yes I washed those pongy items in a twin tub, and strangely enough Sunny I replaced the rubber seal on my pressure cooker only yesterday, surely they're not out of fashion now are they? And even stranger Granny I'm cooking stew for tea tomorrow. Crazy world.

Now (lots of) women do all that and contribute to the family income too.

Re: Who remembers this - 12th Jul 2016 10:50pm

Surely 'lamb hotpots', 'scouse' and 'stews' are not distant memories, yet??

Still cooked frequently here!!

Although to be fair- cooked in a Slow Cooker as opposed to a Pressure Cooker

Re: Who remembers this - 12th Jul 2016 11:02pm

Distant memories here because I hated them, particularly hot pot.

They weren't cooked in a pressure cooker either.

Ration Books. I don't remember them, although rationing was still around until 1955, hence the malt and vitamin supplied for children. (posted yesterday)

No wonder everyone was slim !

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

The weekly ration varied from month to month as foods became more or less plentiful.

A typical ration for one adult per week was:

Butter: 50g (2oz) Bacon and ham: 100g (4oz) Margarine: 100g (4oz)

Sugar: 225g (8oz). Meat: To the value of 1s.2d (one shilling and sixpence per week. That is about 6p today) Milk: 3 pints (1800ml) occasionally dropping to 2 pints (1200ml).
Cheese: 2oz (50g) Eggs: 1 fresh egg a week. Tea: 50g (2oz).
Jam: 450g (1lb) every two months. Dried eggs 1 packet every four weeks. Sweets: 350g (12oz) every four weeks

Blimey Cools, He was almost the same age as me mother. Did you have a mis-spent youth ?

My pin -up was John Kerr ( who wasn't much younger) after seeing him in South Pacific.

Younger than springtime are you, gayer than laughter are you... He sang those words to me you know.

Re: Who remembers this - 19th Jul 2016 1:52pm

What I find so baffling, is that these baths (all of them) were kept, maintained and managed so very well for how ever many years. probably about 50 on average. We had parks and gardens, managed and well maintained. There had been two world wars in the last century, and times where hard, but hey everything managed to keep going and build upon what they had, without funding from the EU. Then, all of a sudden, councils can't afford to keep anything managed or running, not even their buildings or pruning the bloody trees. Why not ? We pay higher and higher rates and getting less and less. Don't give the austerity package, because that is so recent it doesn't even equate to what I am talking about.
It is a great shame, and when other areas still have their outdoor pools, we've lost out and so have the kids who no longer know not what to do during their summer hols.

When I was nought but a lad I was sent to Stubb's barbers on Old Chester Road in Tranmere, he used to put a little plank across the arms of the chair for little ones to sit on, when he had finished he used to run a lighted taper across the back of your neck to burn off all the little hairs and I can still remember the smell today.

Not sure about that Star, I think the market might be limited. The whole concept of it is quite awful really. For those who do not know, it was a money box. Put the money in his hand, turn the ears and then the arm is raised and the money goes into his mouth.

Don't remember them but do remember milk bottles and then cartons and straws. Used to be a tadge creamy on a hot day.
The water glasses we had were made in France by a company called Duralex--read it so many times as you got to the bottom of the glass.

I've watched that film so many times. Always makes me laugh. And not sure about 'loosely based ' , they were probably a lot more closer to the truth. (which was possibly a lot worse !)

I had to google her after reading that granny ..

Personal life
Kirby met Ambrose in her teens and, despite the 42-year age gap and his having an estranged wife at the time, began a relationship with him that lasted until his death in 1971 In the 2009 interview, she said she had had an affair with Bruce Forsyth during this time.

Kirby was married briefly to writer and former London policeman Frederick Pye in the 1970s. Following her bankruptcy in 1975 and a court case following an arrest over an unpaid hotel bill, she was referred to St Luke's psychiatric hospital in London in 1979. Following her discharge, she lived with a female fan, Laraine McKay, and said that they intended to marry. McKay was imprisoned for fraud and forgery. In the early 1980s Kirby had relationships with musician David Cross and lawyer Alan Porter.

Kirby was diagnosed with schizophrenia and was in poor physical and mental health for much of her life. After her retirement she lived in a series of apartments and hotels in west London, settling in an apartment in Emperor's Gate, South Kensington, surviving on state benefits and some royalties, and maintaining what has been called a "Garbo-esque" seclusion. Shortly before her death Kirby moved to Brinsworth House in Twickenham at the insistence of her niece Sarah, Lady Thatcher, wife of Mark Thatcher. Another niece, Claudia, became Lady Rothermere after marrying Viscount Rothermere.

Kirby died on 19 May 2011, a few days after moving to Brinsworth House. According to a message posted by a relative on a fan website, she suffered a heart attack. She was survived by her sister Pat and her brother Douglas.

Star, I think it was a mixture of pulverised stone ,cement and other stuff from what I can find. Probably of a hard gritty composition. My mum used a piece of sandstone which did the same job.

Rhyl Sun Centre, we went once with the children . Not much impressed back in the 80's. Jam packed andall bins overflowing everywhere with old cup, food and nappies. Never again.

Oh Ye Gods, Memory Lane... I used 4711 - in the cute little bottles and the cologne stick (to rub over one's fevered brow) - also Lentheric's Tweed, which was a bit strange to be honest. I seem to recall some scent called Kiku as well, in a yellow container. For sheer knock-yer-socks-off perfume, Estee Lauder's Youth Dew was very popular for a while (in the 70s I think?)

Re: Who remembers this - 6th Aug 2016 11:04pm

Greenwood, You remind me about Kiku,by Faberge . That was a real favourite, although I can't remember what it smelt like. The 4711 and tweed were my mums' stuff. The pong lingers on.

Kiku came out around the same time as Brut for Men.

Backtracking to the game SIMON. It's been re-introduced and on ebay £13.99


There are also hand held version now too. Saw them on John Lewis. about £7 (I think)

I have just ordered the large one off ebay for a little girl with autism. I think the 'pattern' to the game might be something she can enjoy and develop from, whilst playing with other family members.

Probably not. Birds have to adapt I suppose. I can also remember when it was really cold the bottle tops being pushed off because of the ice that formed. [Linked Image]

Power strikes

24th January 1974, 81% of NUM members voted to strike

January to March. (Winter months, of course) Worked by candle light, tele closed down early. At least we had coal fires with back boiler, so we had hot water to get washed with.

Re: Who remembers this - 20th Nov 2016 7:13am


remember it well and wish we could have those days again.........


Checking out at the supermarket, the young cashier suggested to the much older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.

The woman apologised and explained, "We didn't have this 'green thing' back in my earlier days."

The young cashier responded, "That's our problem today - your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."

She was right -- our generation didn't have the 'green thing' in its day.

Back then, we returned milk bottles, lemonade bottles and beer bottles to the shop. The shop sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilised and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled.


But we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

Grocery shops bagged our groceries in brown paper bags, that we re-used for numerous things, most memorable besides household bags for rubbish, was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our schoolbooks. This was to ensure that public property (the books provided for our use by the school), was not defaced by our scribbling. Then we were able to personalise our books on the brown paper bags.

But too bad we didn't do the "green thing" back then.

We walked up stairs, because we didn't have a lift in every supermarket, shop and office building. We walked to the local shop and didn't climb into a 300 horsepower machine every time we had to go half a mile.

But she was right. We didn't have the "green thing" in our day.

Back then, we washed the baby's terry towel nappies because we didn't have the throwaway kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 3 kilowatts – wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids had hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.



But that young lady is right; we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

Back then, we had one radio or TV in the house - not a TV in every room and the TV had a small screen the size of a big handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of Scotland in the kitchen. We blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn petrol just to cut the lawn. We pushed the mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.

But she's right; we didn't have the "green thing" back then.


We drank from a tap or fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razorblades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.

But we didn't have the "green thing" back then.

Back then, people took the bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their Mums into a 24-hour taxi service in the family's £40,000 ‘people carrier’ which costs 8 times more than a whole house did before the "green thing." We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances and we didn't need a computerised gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pub!

But isn't it sad that the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the "green thing" back then?



Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smart arse young person.

We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.. especially from a tattooed, multiple pierced smartarse who can't work out the change without the cash register telling them how much it is!

Here endeth the lesson - but SEND IT ON first.

Miss our pulley in old house. So that's not a bad idea granny. Risk life and limb fitting it. Gone for the wire racks you hang over radiators. Sheets over the stairs. House like a Chinese laundary with all kids still at home.
Whip the knickers and bras off............the radiators when guests call round.

You don't want knickers and bras on when the vicar calls, Fish. For goodness sake !

Was thinking yesterday, about how 'green' we were , how few cars there were on the roads, how old the Liver building is (100 years)and how flipping filthy it was before it was cleaned, which must be about 15 years ago at the same time they changed the lighting on it and made it look like a dolls house. (I hope that didn't come out of the tax payers money. Bloody hell ! ) How did it and St. Georges Hall get so filthy ?
