Sweeties by the 4oz. Not even the full 113grams either, we get 100grams now. Talk about down sizing again! That's two wine gums less! Huh!

I used to pass this garage on the old A46 when I was a kid on the way to Skeggy with my dad, now gone.

We were just discussing what our parents used for washing the dishes in the 30/40s (Mainly Us) lol. It seems the same thing was used for Laundry and Dishes as well. Oxydol being one option and Soap Flakes, plenty of clean water for rinsing!

While researching, I found this link to some information on daily life in the 30/40s, and also a reminder as to the style of homes at that time. Most of us probably lived in homes similar. http://www.iwm.org.uk/learning/resources/the-1940s-house
