Window cleaners up ladders(it's a H & S issue).Also columns of midges on a summers evening.Bonfires on cobbled streets.Milk freezing in the bottle and the Blue Tits getting to it.Icicles.White Cross quality perambulators(the Rolls/Royce of prams) I never saw anyone trying to get on a bus with one though!

(Churwell)I think their successors just drive round in old drop side transit lorries raiding skips.White dog poo came from dogs fed on actual bones and not "Pedigree Slop".In the days of two faced politicians who needs two headed dogs ?
We wanted to make Leeds a better place for the future - but we're losing it. The tide is going out beneath our feet.

Playing with hot tar in summer.It had a very limited potential really but it kept out in the 'fresh' air.A bit like making mud pies and damming streams.I'm convinced all the muck we played with had a beneficial effect in the long run,health wise.

Could be too early to tell, like the kids who played in the Turner Newell asbestos dust around Armley. When we were kids we played anywhere and everywhere and not many people tried to stop us, so God alone knows what we encountered. Still here of course - so far so good.

Sounds like a tide mark round your neck.Do you still see leather school satchels, real schoolboy caps,wooden pencil boxes,wooden rulers,navy blue gaberdine belted raincoats, trainspotters, Jowett Javelins??Do kids still play whip and top, hopscotch, rounders, British bulldog, ship & anchor ??Do kids still get Whitsuntide clothes to show off to their relos and get money?
