I remember going to my Grand parents back in the early 70's. They were absolutely loaded but insisted on keeping an 'Outside Loo' and the toilet paper was neatly cut squares of newspaper hung on a piece of string.!

 

We hated going...But it was a chore we had to endure.

 

The christmas presents were awful, a second hand book wrapped in glossy xmas paper..!!

 

We stayed over one time and to keep us warm in bed we were given a HOUSE BRICK (that had been warmed up in the kitchen coal fire).. covered in a very thick sock .,!

 

No modern fandangled hot water bottles here lad..!

 

Fond memories though.

Luxury!!

The bike will have been dumped due to the chain being broken , like Bassett says. It is well beyond the abilities of many adults let alone kids to repair a chain or even a puncture. Chuck it in the skip and we'll buy a new 'un.
