We had 45 rpm and 78 rpm records. Also 33 1/3 rpm, which were quite new. You can see that the middle could be pushed out if necessary to fit the record player. And the records could be stacked one on top of the other and would drop automatically when the last one finished playing. The arm would lift, swivel back to the start position, and wait for the next record.
This is almost exactly like the first tv I can remember .
We watched (“Watch with Mother”) The Woodentops, Andy Pandy, Bill and Ben, and, wait for it, Muffin the Mule.
There were no games consoles, no personal computers, no printers.
We played board games or outside in the garden (not out the front, not allowed).
Early working years
There were no photocopiers or fax machines. We used Roneo Gestetners to make more than 3 copies. That involved typing, very hard, on a wax sheet with a carbon sheet behind it, facing upwards, so you could see what you’d typed. Mistakes were corrected with special fast-drying liquid wax.
This is exactly like the one I used to use. It was in the most important secretary’s office.That’s it so far folks. More if I can remember any.
