I can remember the dress my Mother sewed for me it was a short green dress with a long appliqued Dachshund with a long gold chain attached to it at the top of the dress, she took this pattern from the Woman and Home Magazine, I was about 7 years old then. My brother wore shorts, and the shorts were like a skirt!! they were so wide. Not much else that I can remember except that we used to have a nice quiet innocent time those days.... reading our Enid Blyton books, and my cousins father (my Uncle ) used to buy his children all the TinTin Books and they had the whole series along with Dennis the Menace books which I loved to read at the time.... My brother used to read The Billy Bunder and William series... I was still coming into the Enid Blyton stage with grew more in the 70's.
Playing Ludo and Snakes and ladders was our favorite game with our cousins, and Hide and Seek.
I think pinafore dresses were the style then....I remember asking my brother stupid question, how do people die, well I was small then.... and one of my Uncles' had passed away in 1969 and I did not know even know how human beings died....at the time.
oh and we had only black and white or brown photography colour came in the late 70s I think.
