  2. Memories of the orange packet and Cadbury's Bournville cocoa.

    Did you find any old newspapers stuffed down the back of walls or used as padding. I find that engrossing as well.

  3. We did not find these cards the previous owner did. As for newspapers the only one we found was one from the 1950s stuffed up the chimney in our bedroom. I think there might have been one from the 1960s found in the wall of the laundry. I saw our builder secreting the daily paper in the woodwork of the stairwell to delight someone one day in the future.

  4. The ship Terra Nova looks very vulnerable in that old newspaper clipping. Not like the big icebreakers of today!

  7. What a great collection! The top one is a beauty but the previous Colombo view is very interesting too.

  8. Cadburys, now owned by Kraft, not an improvement in my view. Titus Oates, Captain Oates made famous by his last words "I am just going outside and may be some time." lived here in Leeds for some time. Whilst at school he was one of my heroes but I did not know of the Yorkshire connection, I lived then in Oxfordshire. Captain Oates Leeds memorial
