There are Elephants in the Room … # 2

Hello.  Welcome to my second  “1951 Elephant Fixation”  therapy session. Today’s offering comes in the form of a short Pathe News feature from 1951 called Elephant Wash. I am far from being cured but I live in hope. Anyway, sit back and enjoy …


On the Buses … 1951 (Part 1)

On the Buses … 1951 (Part 1)


For many of us, buses are as much a part of our childhood as toys and teddy bears. Taking a trip on a London Transport bus during the 1950s was always an adventure. The constant ‘ting ting’ of the wire string bells. The glorious occasions when the conductors changed the rolls on their ticket machines and gave you the remainder of the roll.  


Today’s offering is a couple of brief snippets about London buses in 1951 courtesy of Pathe News. Please watch them as they are NOT what you are probably expecting. I guarantee that they will make your happiness factor go up a few points.

How’s your happiness factor ?  This next clip should just about finish the job.

More next week …
