 :D   Not at all, Mudgie.  I come from what was a slum in Stockport.

My Dad worked his socks off all his life,as did my Mother and saved for years to give me my honeymoon money.

Jane,
I stand corrected – as the man in the orthopaedic shoe said..
My mother was born in Lily Street, Crumpsall in 1925 but her father worked hard for W M Christy and Sons in Lower Mosley Street and the family moved to Cheadle Hulme.

And this shows how London changed over several years

No longer are “all women wearing skirts or dresses” but “short shorts and tight tops” are fashionable by 1976.
I didn’t recognise that street but at about 6½ minutes noticed a sign for Royal Avenue which is just off the King’s Road – and that means it was filmed just half a mile from the Star Tavern and the Anglesea Arms, both pubs that I used quite often during the 1970s.

It’s a mystery how the person filming that, didn’t get hand-bagged  :o

I can't play it. It says I don't have Flash installed.
Harley Quin is a mystery. He appears and disappears unexpectedly and by strange tricks of light and reflections; making his clothes seem brightly multicoloured like the theatrical Harlequin.

Thanks, Mudgie. The YT ones work. All looks a bit pervy to me! I'll watch them in full when I've more time.  :D

HQ,
But ‘pervy’ is what the 1970s very sadly were.
