Remember when......

Photo Information
My Grandma Had one of these. The wood wayworn as smooth as a babies bottom, pardon the pun. Every week a local farmer would come round an empty, he would then spread it on his fields. Health and Safety would have a field day nowadays. I was very restricted in regards of the angle and proximity, would have liked a more detail shot.

The first primary school I went to did not have flushing toilets! The situation was very similar to what is pictured and describe. I prefer things as they are now.

You tell youngsters and they don't believe you.

A "nice" gritty image.
Best wishes,

Brings back memories - although of an example in slightly better condition
There was also a nail with sheets of torn up newsprint impaled on it - I can still recall the revelation and my childhood amazement when I first met a roll of Izal with "Government Property" printed on every sheet
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
