Fifties childhoods

See this article.

It wasn't much different in the 60s and early 70s, at least where I lived.

Re: Fifties childhoods

I can't remember 'snail races' in Keighley (where did snails live on cobbled streets?) but I do remember pulling Robert Sutcliffe around 'the shed' beneath Holycroft Infants School with sparks shooting-off his clogs. We enjoyed pulling him around and obviously he enjoyed the experience!

Years at KBGS e.g. 1958-1964 (optional) 1959-66

Current location (optional) Embsay - but not much longer
