Old UK memories, can you remember ?

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits

Back in the days of tanners and bobs,

When Mothers had patience and Fathers had jobs.

When the children of families wore hand me down shoes,

And T.V gave only two channels to chose.

Back in the days of three penny bits,

when schools employed nurses to search for your nits.

When snowballs were harmless; ice slides were permitted

and all of your jumpers were warm and hand knitted.

Back in the days of hot ginger beers,

when children remained so for more than six years.

When children respected what older folks said,

and pot was a thing you kept under your bed.

Back in the days of Listen with Mother,

when neighbours were friendly and talked to each other.

When cars were so rare you could play in the street.

When Doctors made house calls; Police walked the beat.

Back in the days of Milligan's Goons,

when butter was butter and songs all had tunes.

It was dumplings for dinner and trifle for tea,

and your annual break was a day by the sea.

Back in the days of Dixon's Dock Green,

Crackerjack pens and Lyons ice cream.

When children could freely wear National Health glasses,

and teachers all stood at the FRONT of their classes

Back in the days of rocking and reeling,

when mobiles were things that you hung from the ceiling.

When woodwork and pottery got taught in schools,

and everyone dreamed of a win on the pools.

Back in the days when I was a lad,

I can't help but smile for the fun that I had.

Hopscotch and roller skates; snowballs to lob.

Back in the days of tanners and bobs

I agree, shame as it was nice having them in one bar. There was also the milk tray bar with squares of different chocolate.

Beano and Dandy.

Girls Crystal and School Friend, very happy times for me. 🙂

I remember them both but didnt have them. I had Bunty, with the cut out dress up dolls on the back.

Yes, and Bunty. I loved those cut out dolls. Was there another comic as well as Bunty? I can’t remember now!

Judy ?

Doesn’t ring a bell, but could be. 🙂

They are really small now!!! xxxx

Choc ices and tubs. Orange Maid which really tasted of oranges and had little pieces of orange in them. Mivis, and Snow Fruits which were triangular in shape. 🙂

I don't remember Snow Fruits. Mivvis - yum!

Strawberry! Neapolitan ice cream was a novelty. and Lyons Maid did one with green ice cream. 🙂

Green? That must have been a novelty. Do you remember those screw thingies- a plastic cone with a ball of bubble gum in the bottom, and a Swirl of ice cream on top? Can't remember the name.

Yes, but I didn’t like the idea of ruining the ice cream experience with bubble gum. We’re they Screw Balls? 🙂

Ahh yes. That was it. I didn't like the taste of the ice cream in them.

Oldham65 profile image
Oldham65 in reply to MadBunny

I didn't like the bubble gum xxxx

Midori profile image
MidoriVisually impaired in reply to MadBunny

Snowfruits had a Blue raspberry flavour to differentiate it from the strawberry.

I don't remember the Snow Fruits either R but the others I do very well. For some reason, they tasted much better then than they do now, maybe it's because then things were more natural but now we have artificial colours etc.

Bridge31 profile image
Bridge31 in reply to springcross

Maybe because it was more of a treat

Used to love a Mivi

Midori profile image

I loved the pineapple Mivvi!

The pictures were taken from some books I have:50s and 60s Scrapbooks by Robert Opie. They're the sort of books you can look at for ages , remembering times past.

Can't think who the woman is

Don't recognise the guy on the far left

The woman looks like Britt Ekland.

Do you think so? I'm not so sure. 🤔

I think it is. It sure looks like her and she was big on the London scene in the 60's and early 70's.

It's the cast of a film called The Alf Garnett Saga, that you can watch on YouTube. But I must warn you the language in it is so racist that it would never be shown on TV in this day and age !xx

Oh we used to watch Alf Garnett religiously, I don't think we missed an episode. Great stuff but I couldn't watch it now as the shouting would really annoy me (I've got my polite head on here 😂).

Is it?? So the lady at the back is grandma then? Mind you my grandma was a formidable lady.

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to MadBunny

I don't know about the lady at the back but he's posted it before a few months back. I had a grandma (who was gone before I was born) who apparently was a very formidable lady - she dragged my dad's teacher off his pushbike by his ear. 🤭

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to springcross

Love it !!!! You didn't mess with those ladies 😁Mind you my grandma had to bring 5 kids up single handed, as grandad died quite young. The eldest helped out with the kids while grandma took on cleaning jobs.

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to MadBunny

The teacher alway used to pull my dad by the ear in the classroom and he always had problems with that ear, so she waited for the teacher to cycle home from school one night and grabbed him. She pulled him off the bike onto the floor and said "there's plenty more of where that came from if you pull my son's ear one more time". She apparently was a real tough cookie and didn't take any messing from anyone. My dad always suffered with that ear though all his life after that.

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to springcross

That is brilliant 🤣🤣🤣

I should have said that when my dad grew up, he was quite tough too and wouldn't let anyone push him around - a lesson well learned from a bullying teacher.

focused1Reading Rabbits in reply to springcross

I was born in 1960 before Mc Donalds and fish n chips was an affordable Friday tea . We had Jiffy jellies in glass dishes and at Nans cream was a tin of Carnation Evaporated milk . She used to think she was posh buying Irish Mallow Biscuits . I used to be bought a bag of cheap chocolate - Sharps chocolate tools which I shared with the dog . When I was older I liked Sounds newspaper . It always smelt of strong ink . I used to pinch my sisters Petticoat magazine as it has a naughty problem page .

springcross profile image
springcross in reply to focused1

Our fish and chips were Saturday dinner for which we queued forever - down the road and round the corner. I remember Jiffy Jellies and Carnation Evaporated Milk too. Also Kraft cheese slices and sterilised milk which was used for tea (not the cheese slices though 😂). We used to have the broken biscuits. I remember the sliced bread wrapped in wax paper and cold meat being sliced in front of you on a machine while you waited but the corned beef was always done with a knife by hand.

focused1 profile image
focused1Reading Rabbits in reply to springcross

Libbys corned beef in a long slim tin and St Ivel cheese in a blue box - some sort of lactic cheese . Oh the sterra milk in the glass bottles with a slim neck and a beer bottle top .Vesta meals which you can still buy but not seen the curry ones for ages . I loved the Ski yogurt in pots that looked like Daleks and seemed to be bigger with loads more fruit than you get nowadays .

I remember Libby's and the Vesta meals, I used to love the curry one. I don't remember having any of the others. Ski yogurts too.

Vesta meal ..there was a beef risotto and prawn . chicken and beef curry . I sort of remember a Chow Mein with crispy noodles which were dried flat ones in a clear packet and you fried them . I thought they were magic as they looked like quavers but had no flavouring .

You can almost guess what they were saying, Bobby Moore, all smiles, The geezer in the cap [Bazzack buying a round?], West Ham won so I'm paying, Arthur Askey and Warren Mitchell, they wot! Eric Sykes, here we go again! Max Bygraves, Kenny Lynch [and the actress in the dark hat and makeup???] non plussed [they bet on Spurs who lost!]😘😘

Could it have been Chas or Dave, but it's the name of that actress gets "under me claw"🥴 Maybe it was Bazzak serving behind the bar, and they were all saying "How much?" laughing or realising "I paid for my round already!"😗😗😗😆😆

Threepenny pieces, reminds me of going to church. The first school I got sent to, you went to church twice on a Sunday, Matins and Evensong. For each of these we had to be in our best Sunday uniform and wearing gloves. The teacher checked that each child had a threepenny piece in her gloved hand, for collection, bang went most of your pocket money.

Frozen milk at school, with teacher trying to thaw it out by the stove before play time - outside.

We used to put our little bottles of milk on the radiators, we had milk monitors who were responsible for handing out the milk and collecting the empty bottles. 🙂

Bazzak profile image
BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to Rachmaninov2

I was a milk monitor, and we always had extra milk ! Probably why I was a fat boy at primary school 😁x

You’ve reminded me now about the extra milk, that was good in the winter when the milk was cold but no one wanted to drink it in the summer when it had been standing in the sun. Do you remember?I’m sure you weren’t fat, maybe a bit plump!

Yes so true and what wonderful memories, even though most families had very little money, everyone was happy xx

Well, this has been interesting. I was born in 1970 in Michigan. How times have changed from how I grew up. Do the 12 and 13 year olds still take classes in BOTH home ec and shop like I did????? No, I guess their all sitting in front of computers learning all their marketable computer skills. No one knows how to sew a shirt or a pillow together, and no one knows how to solder a metal shovel together like I did or use a coping saw to carve wood. And none of these youngsters have any passable handwriting, they print and type and send emails and texts instead of an old fashioned caring letter. Very short and to the point .

Here's Miranda Lambert singing about it. youtu.be/2ksWKOy665o

Oh gosh! That took me back. Brilliant.

Oh yes! absolutely.

Climbing trees, skinning knees. Soap box carts, digging dens, all that fun the current kids have missed. Scouts and Guides, never see them now.

Youth clubs, where boys and girls could socialise.
