  1. Happy Birthday DJ360

    Belated birthday wishes, Col.
  2. Happy Birthday Bubblewrap

    Very belated birthday greetings Bubblewrap, sorry it's late, and hope you had a good day.
  3. Jonab, I remember soft roes on toast, used to love them, but there was also hard roes if I remember rightly, didn't like them, quite 'bitty'.
  4. Rowena White

    There is a Rowena Edlin-White, born 1948 Nottingham. I think she went to Mundella, not sure. Her contact is ro@edlin-white.net. She is the author of some books.
  5. Cigarette cards

    I think as kids we pronounced trefoil as trifle!
  6. Cigarette cards

    I always thought Birds Foot Trefoil was eggs and bacon. I guess I was wrong.
  7. A memory just popped in me head about Sunday school. We took sixpence I do believe and got a picture stamp to stick in a book. When all the stamps were on the page it made a big picture. Anyone else remember this?
  8. Anybody had a 'result' lately ?

    Is that what they mean when they say, we pulled the rug from under their feet!
  9. Jonab, I think that is the first time anyone has mentioned shawls, lots of lace and knitwear mentions, but when you think of the olden days, most women wore a shawl. Someone had to make them.
  10. More trolley buses:

    Why they did away with a public transport that was clean and quiet, is a mystery. If they'd brought back trolley buses instead of trams, there'd have been very little disruption putting the overhead lines in, and Nottingham would have been unique, being the only City in the country with trolleys. They could swing around another vehicle to get past, so keeping on time. Trams are everywhere nowadays, and total chaos while putting in the tracks. Then again every time they decide to extend the service, Phoenix is just the same.
  11. Things you don't see anymore

    I think our council house was 9 bob a week.
  12. Fantastic Value Breakfast

    She'll catch her death of cold!
  13. How's your day?

    Phil, I was impressed for a minute, thought you were typing on here and having a wee at the same time! I had to finish the sentence to see you were not!
  14. Black Boy Hotel

    I wouldn't have parked me car there, either.
