This may tell you more about your memory, than mine does about me.
If you remember the opening sequences for films by Gracie Films, they have the reel animation. For reasons even I don't know, I was thinking of them.

Have you never heard of "a single" or "an LP" ? These were flat, black (usually) plastic things that were played on a gramaphone on a 33rpm or 45rpm setting.

I don't remember the party lines but then again it was a while before we got a phone anyway :roll:

It's easier to list what I don't remember than what I do as it is a shorter list lol

Don't remember:-

2. Coffee shops with juke boxes
4. Party lines
5. News reels

and what they hell were metal ice trays? Didn't they rust?

Made from aluminium. Not a great way of making ice cubes as the insert never fitted properly.

It's not Alzheimers lol

For example i know "of" wringers but we didn't personally have one when i was young.

Nope I can safely say I don't remember those at all but there again we didn't have the luxury of ice cubes :lol:

Anyone remember the plastic cup lollies, usually cock or raspberry for 5p?

What's the blue flashbulb all about,i've no idea about that!!

We had one of those ice cube trays with the handle thingy they were a right pain in the backside!

I was looking for a metal ice cube tray for a long time, for use in freezing food to wean my son. I was happy to find it but once i had used it three or four times, the lever handle started to break. I have not been able to use it confidently since and have been in touch with the company i bought it from who asked me to take a picture before i could return it to them. I am still waiting to hear back. Very disappointed indeed in the product itself and the customer service.
