  1. Oh, my gosh! Are those actual children doing things OUTSIDE? Getting fresh air??? Say it ain’t so.

    I do remember having to go out during certain times. Other times, wanting to go out but unable to because I either had homework or did something wrong and got put on restriction. (I think they call it a “Time Out” these days.) I would sit in front of the window and my siblings would ride their bicycles by, pointing and laughing at me for not being able to join in.

  2. Fabulous series of pictures! That third pic with the kids on the rabbit-hoppers (space-hoppers?)… I had one of those when I was about that age. Didn’t work well on concrete and suffered abrasion… But the one I had met its end with a failure of the joint between the ‘rabbit ear’ handle and the balloon section. I still remember that, for some reason.

  3. These are lovely photos making me feel all nostalgic for a time when I doubt I was even alive or at least just alive. I wonder if 50 odd years someone will post pictures of a load of kids staring at their mobile phones and someone will write… There are lovely photos making me feel…. Didn’t spot the celebrity unless it’s the photo of the 2 kids with colanders on their heads and sunglasses, in which case they grew up to become the Buggles (you know… Video Killed the Radio Star!)
    Did I win?
    Didn’t think so!
