    Those were the days

    Those were the days



    Bars offering one for the road



    Tie Pins



    Wearing a suit to bed aka PJs


    Life without a password or pin number to forget


    Film trailers boasting of Techniclor


    Chocolate in sliver foil




    Phone Booths


    Fish and Chips in newspaper


    Women with staples

    Girls with braces



    Piccaninnies, Mohammadans and Chinamen in school books


    Suitcases had no wheels you had to carry them, REALLY


    Imagine some geek hacked your iPhone and took away the radio apps the phone and the music so it was just a camera and you sent your pix away for 2 weeks before putting them in an envelope with a stamp to those nice folks from 100km away you met on holiday never to see again


    Imagine trains full of smokey smokers and soot tattooing your elbow

    Pipes, bow ties, garters

    Animals in circuses

    Model crippled kids with a hole in the head or lifeboats to place charity coins

    Kodak Girls

    Cars with Fins



    Beer tins with no ring pulls


    Flared trousers not worn as a joke


    Winding down car window with a handle to adjust the mirror


    Walking, yes actually off the sofa to change tv channel


    Opening a little blue bag to salten crisps

    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    You'll love it when you get dementia, they have places now that recreate the golden days to make patients feel at home and responsive.

    Yep much better then, and your dinner was ready on the table. Your wife listened patiently whilst you bullshitted about what a bad day you'd had but all the while had spent the day down the gentlemans club having popped gloria over the desk mid morning.

    Some of those were a bit before my time.
    Having said that, my younger days were in 1970's Fiji which was at the best of times 10 years behind the modern world, at the worst of times still in the 1920's, so I can relate.
    eg, petrol bowsers consisting of a hand lever pump and a large (maybe 10 gallons?) glass tank that gravity fed your fill-up.


    The airport fire truck (landrover with fire extinguishers) chasing the cows off the field before any plane could land.
    Getting the cane in school and detention after school.
    Girls that put out because you were the man and you'd bought dinner.
    Simplex boat engines that you had to roll the flywheel to start.
    Doing your banking before 4 pm Friday or else you'd have to wait until 9 am Monday.
    Buses that stopped anywhere on the route, including so a passenger could have a quick chat with a relative or buy from a roadside stall.
    ....

    Damn young fuckwits.
    Consider the 80s and 90s to be nostalgic, attempting to fit in.

    Still remain Generations haven't a clue.

    If you were born before mid 70's, the 80's would certainly be nostalgic, no mater how old you are now.

    We have a, not so fancy, 10 litre one at the local store today. Screwed into the top of a drum.

    We had those too, but for kerosine (kerosine was for the Primus cookers and lamps that everyone used). Most "mom and pop" shops had them.

    YEp, used to love going to the pub with my dad lunchtime after he'd been on shopping duty on saturday. Pint or two for him, pint of shell on prawns for me. Back to sport on Grandstand on the B&W TV, he'd crack his party 7 and settle down to golf which most of the time consisted of the camera man panning around trying to spot the ball in the air. Sigh happy days
