I'm a self employed car mechanic and nostalgia nut, I'm very proud of the time (the 80's)in which I grew up, I'm so glad its not now! I own a 1970's Morris Marina, I'm a huge fan of 1970's architecture (even although the clowns in the council want to erase the 70's from the face of the earth), in fact if I had a time machine I'd just go back to the 70's and stay there!
Teletext Teletext has it's own special memory for me, my dad was a TV engineer in the 80's for Radio Rentals (remember them?) and although I wasn't around for it coming out (ceefax started 1974) I do remember going into the workshop where my dad worked (he was the boss) at the weekends and seeing rows of brand new sets on the workbenches and fiddling with the teletext on them! My dad even made a hybrid decoder board for teletext and retrofitted it into an old 70's set, it worked perfect, with it's ultrasonic remote!
Woolworths Can't believe that an established institution like Woolworths has folded up, everybody has memories of woolies, the smell in the shop, the pick n' mix, even just the shop itself, it was just unique, a solid, friendly face in the high street, now in the history books. A sad comment on modern day Britain.
