Superstorm Sandy versus the New York Cars.

Well … things aren’t looking too good right now and we’re thinking of all the folks caught up in this disaster … and our thoughts go with all the victims and their families. You will prevail.

Meanwhile here is a short pictorial interlude while we all begin to get a handle on it all.

The 1951 Club Guide to … Hosepipe Bans

This is a picture of an American gentleman watering his lawn sometime in 1951 … so that’s the 1951 connection for you.
(Nice motor by the way.)
He looks a bit fed up though if you ask me.

Anyway … this post was inspired by another post I read earlier today  concerning the plight of a great many households in England who are faced with the prospect of a lengthy hosepipe ban. You can read it here .
What follows is a 1951 Club pictorial guide to the hosepipe ban … a few very simple do’s and don’ts to get you through these trying times.

This is ... a very sexy closeup shot of a hosepipe I think you'll agree. Missing you already!

Mmmm ... nice!

So nice in pvc don't you think !

Sorry Madam ... this is a very definite no no.

Still a no no I'm afraid.

Still not going to happen ...

I also ... am going to think this one out.

Oh come on ... What's there to think about for heaven's sake.

Get this fecking thing off my head!!!
