This iReport is part of an assignment:
What the late 1960s really looked like
Old & New
The photo taken in 1969 is a link between the old and the new and shows my wife, Sue, on the running board of a steam engine.
The old is represented by the steam locomotive as by that time in Britain the only steam engines left were shunting sidings as this one does, the new is the mini-skirt which all girls and young women were wearing by the end of the 60s.
