Office equipment from another day. The second one is a crank calculator. I used one in 1966

Toy lead soldiers. I had lots of these. I think there was a lot of lead in my life back then. It might explain a few things

I believe they are collectible and quite value in pristine condition:

My Gran used to make me a couple of heart attack specials that are in my very distant past. First was fried bread. Just bread fried in a pan with the fat left over from the freshly fried streaky bacon. Not too much fat or the bread would not be nice and crisp but sufficiently imbued with the hot bacon grease. The second treat was fresh crusty bread spread with cold beef dripping. Yum. Certainly great memories but not part of today’s world. :shock:

I used to love my water pistol. I had one like this that was transparent which seemed super cool.

I spent countless hours playing with my Mecano sets. I think it might have been a way for the parents to keep me occupied and out of trouble. Would kids today be interested?

Its amazing to think that early desktops could cost up to 7-8 thousand pounds albeit with very few resources. Upgrades like ram and hard drives were insanely expensive. Note the 5 inch floppy drives
