I remember when there was nothing open on a Sunday . It was SO quiet everywhere .
And certainly no 24 hour opening as in supermarkets and petrol stations etc.
Sunday's were lovely.
We had a roast dinner and all the family were together .
In winter we played board games and in summer we had days out.

I remember when I was 4 and my dad taking me into our back garden and saying people are on the moon tonight, over 50 years a go now.
That time's flown by.

Seems dear for crisps that Angel,we had a very limited selection of snacks at junior school in early seventies with three types of crisps think Puffs were the cheapest at 2d,salt n shake 3d,there were also penny wafers,I used to sometimes get a small bottle of pop with my 3d or was it 3p,cant recall if we had decimilised by then,also Caramacs were a cheap option,now being phased out.My first wage was £12 a week and had to walk about six miles to work as I couldn't afford the adult busfare,I got away with paying child rate for a while but my work clothes gave me away eventually!

I remember bounty bars and milky ways being in paper wrappers with a cardboard type holder under them, that must have been over 30 years a go now.
I suppose they did away with the cardboard holders to save money.

Speaking of buses, Podshell reminded me of them.
Everyone used to go into town on the buses as not many people had cars in those days.
Do you remember when the buses were all double deckers and you got on at the back ( it had no doors, just a pole in the middle !) And the stairs were at the back and spiralled round to the top deck.There was a conductor/conductress with a ticket machine strapped across their body. I used to be fascinated by this ticket machine . They would punch the fare in and wind a little handle and tear your ticket off....
And how on earth did they remember who had just got on in order to get the fare on a crowded bus ?...
Happy days.

Also they had smoking upstairs on the double decker buses.
My parents and uncles would go up there for a cigarette, ashtrays were on the back of the seats.
