Welcome, and please join me in a visit to “The Olden Days”, where we’ll reminisce about the good old days (and maybe some of the not-so-good old days) of our youth. Remember the old school bell, desk, and inkwells and blotting paper? Or trafficators and crank-handles? What about Ice boxes, and mangles? Conkers? LP records? The Olden Days looks at some of the things we once had and used, It also looks at services we "enjoyed" like ice delivery, the rag-and-bone man and the night-cart, and compares our lifestyles then and now.

On these pages we look at changes in technology, home-goods, transport, education and many more fields which I'm sure will bring a smile of recognition from those who lived in that period, and chuckles of amusement from those who didn't. It is hoped that the items will be of interest to older people like myself, our families, and students. If something triggers memories for you, or seems particularly interesting to you, the site has achieved its purpose.
Feel free to E-mail me with your comments and your own stories. If suitable, and with your permission, they may be published here also. Now,Sit back and enjoy a return to "The Olden Days" with me.
