papa’s slidebox

ok usual deal – no idea where but sometime in the 50's or 60's. Although I know this is london. I love how everyone used to dress.  Look at that woman in the white suit – gorgeous. And the little girl in her green coat and hat.

I think the red double deckers are over now.

This was probably a country town show. Wonder if it was taken where I grew up. There was only a population of about 3000 people and the yearly show was quite an event. They had the sideshow with boxing and the tents that kids couldn't go in with a spruiker out the front and the "freaks" inside. Shows are pretty boring now thats all gone.

Watch repairs – for some reason I have India written under this one. That doesn't mean it is. Anyone know what that writing is?

And this one just because it looked nice

  1. Their official use in Britain ended two years ago. They remain in use for history tours; those not in service are sites for parties, estate agencies and to house the homeless. The double-deckers from Britain remain in use in other regions of the world, including Asia.
