Also confused about the 'Beef Pesss'. Would it have been a Meat Press? One of those things where you cook a Tongue! then curl it into the meat press, put on the lid and screw it down. When cold, remove from press, carve and serve with salad?
We didn’t even have tvs when I was very young. Most houses had a piano, though, including ours. We didn’t have cars, either, most of us. Most of us were slim, all that walking and running around. You could buy sweets for almost nothing and I used to go and buy my Dad’s senior service cigarettes for him in 5 s. They didn’t care that you were only 6 years old. We used to put oil on our skin so we would tan , no one knew about skin cancer.
I wondered when this year's liberty bodice thread would appear.
I bet yours didn't have suspenders as my mother had, and would wonder if the younger generation would know what suspenders were, especially men's which my father wore. A leather shaving strap my grandfather had to sharpen the blades and the meat safe and tin bath on the yard wall or if you lived in the north east mining community in the kitchen under a lift-up table top.
Mangles with big rubber rollers. Rubber buttons on pyjamas etc so they didn’t break in the mangles. Scrubbing boards. Milk delivered in horse drawn carts (Scotland in the 60s). Dad rushing out to scoop up any horse manure for the rhubarb bed. Vesta risotto. Milk bars. Wedding receptions in Scotland, in a local hall, steak pie dinner, followed by Scottish country dancing - and lots of alcohol. A great time was had by all for a reasonable outlay.
