Ice Magic - Ooo I remember this :-) we had it as a treat, when you poured the sauce onto your ice cream it went hard like a chocolate shell mmmmmmm ;

manual choke on dash - You had to spend time getting to know just where to position it - too much and you flooded the engine and had to wait 5 mins before retrying. I suppose the retro equivalent of locking your iphone!!

Spangles - remember these? I loved them! Nan used to bring me a packet if she picked me up from school

Spangles - remember these? In 1974 they had fizzy flavours like Orangeade and Lemonade. Spangles are a good reminder of a time when, as Roald Dahl once said, "the sweetshop was the very centre of our lives"

Remember the rag and bone man? "Any old iron" he used to call. Well, this is me looking at his horse! I guess this would have been about 1965? Social history!

Horse drawn rag and bone cart.I remember the rag and bone man's call of "any old iron"-he would give us kids a balloon or a goldfish in a plastic bag in exchange for some rags.We loved to pet the horse and feed it sugar lumps or apples.
