    CLOTHES AND SHOES OF YESTERYEAR

    Hi Viv, have to say many fashions keep me amused. Currently the hilarious hair styles sported by men and the trend for young women dressed in their finery with huge great boots on their feet. Would be interesting to see how they feel in twenty years time.:D:D NoddKD. Easily amused.

    Icknield St School

    Hi Martin, thanks for your reply. You're right a short time at the school and I really don't remember a great deal about my time there. I recall that one of the teachers had a vintage\veteran car, Austin 7? Which was parked in the playground outside the metalwork shop. Strange the things that...

    Haircuts now and then

    As children we were taken to the barbers in Ladywood Rd ,opposite Chamberlain Gardens. He always threatens to cut off our heads and replace them with cabbages. I do occasionally feel that he did just that.:D:D NoddKD. He with the green head.
