Golden Days

Post  evergreen blue on Thu Jul 19, 2012 1:44 am

I come from the Golden Age. I reckon I'm a Golden Oldie.

When you could leave your front door open, and go into town.
Fish and chips a tanner,(6p)
Bread and dripping, Proper dripping. (Beef was cheap)
Pubs on each corner, selling British Beer. Or Real Ale as they call it today..6p a pint
Queue's at the flicks. six pence.
Jane in the Daily Mirror.
Blues on a Saturday (3pm without fail) No silly times. No Sunday's. No mid weeks.
A tanner to get in with 48000 others.
And your bike was safe, parked up by the maisonettes,on Kingston Hill.

Oh Happy Days. The Golden Days. of yesteryear. Will we ever see them again?

Simple answer, No

Those days will never be repeated especially the 48k crowd i also remember the days standing on the Tilton and The Kop being squashed up against the barriers and the surge forward when we scored. I was one of the 43.864 that watched us beat the Vilers 3-0 in 82.
I was young when we lived in the days of trust growing up on the Druids Heath estate was not the best of enviroments but at least in those days everybody within a couple of streets knew nearly everybody else and was always on hand to help if needed.

Those days have certainly gone

No, society has become greedy and uncaring
