When I were a lad …

  • A first class postage stamp cost 10p and we had two reliable postal deliveries a day
  • Computer games ran in 1KB of memory
  • Modems connected at 0.3Kbps
  • London telephone numbers had 9 digits
  • You left a spare front door key under the door mat
  • There were 3 television channels
  • Daytime TV was ‘Pebble Mill at One’
  • TV closed down at night
  • Remote controls were attached by wires
  • Only trucks had diesel engines
  • The First Division was the top tier of English football – not the third
  • Snickers were called Marathon and Starburst were called Opal Fruits
  • Minis were mini
