PostSubject: What can you Remember from the Past   Sun Jun 12, 2011 11:22 am

First topic message reminder :

Something light hearted :: . In one of my day dreaming moments I suddenly thought of my days at the GPO and some of the things that were around in those days like:-

Izal Toilet Rolls
Green soap with bits in.
Carbolic soap
Swarfega

Can you add to the list?

My Nan had a big metal mangle with wooden rollers, a bed sheet would come out the other side looking like hardboard, no water in sight!! Eat your heart out Hoover and Electrolux these things worked and didn't use any electric. Only trouble was you needed a spare empty room to use them, they were rather big!!

What about the Flat Iron and the Mangle on the draining Board. The copper for hot water to boil whites in. The bit of lino around the carpet square which was polished with lavender Polish. The horse and cart milk delivery. Oh joy. Gas lamps on Railway station platforms, is there more I ask
