This was the time when we hard working housewives had a break, before starting the dinner which had to be ready, and the table set, for the man of the house when he came in from work!!!!!

Of course, no electricity those days, much money for that matter.
We had an old Wireless set and I remember having to carry the
accumulator all the way to Ryan's shop in Monkton Road to be
charged then carry one all the way back. Were'nt allowed on the
bus because of the acid.

Yes letmein I remember the accumulator's, and the old gas mantles, and the gas and electric meter's which you had to feed with coins,( I had them in the first house I was in when I got married) and the man used to come around to empty them and sometime if you where lucky you got a rebate.Confusedad:Confusedad:Confusedad:
