A free range childhood.



Sometimes pictures say it better than words


When cars knew their place


A time before cars


                                                        When Bin had sentinels ....

                        (What was going on in their minds? Something richer than a video screen)



Bins without sentinels

Different days. I can honestly say I felt safer back then than how I feel about neighborhoods today.

Well, I guess you're lucky, Maria. You no longer live in a 'neighbourhood' as such : ) and we live in an exceptionally nice one. The said thing is though, the neighbour we grew up in in Liverpool has changed for the worse. I'll post some more pictures next week on ghosts of things past.
