    I know that things were not brilliant for many in London only a few years after the ending of the first world war, and just pre 2nd world war...and there was a lot of poverty around too as well as wealth ... but I love these eclectic pictures. It shows hope and happiness in adversity...

    It makes sense for Black and White to be the name for an ice cream bar, since they have that dark chocolate coating over the vanilla ice cream inside. I only remember them being called an ice cream bar here; but when they first came out, they could have had a different name.

    Holly I loved the black and white photos and the shorts or skorts and the shoes that those girls were wearing and I noticed Wrigley's chewing gum Ad on the bus.. I thought that was made in America. I was surprised to see the ad ..

    @Louise Williams - Oh I had the warning alright, BIG letters they were flashed on me screen :eek:

    I was all a jitter, a quivering wreck - screaming at Fabs to 'elp me :eek:

    Once all was calm, Fabs (Sparky to you) showed me how it happens to him when he goes to an animation site :confused:
    Yes, we're covered by security, but it still sends me ga ga when it happens ....................:p
