    What a wonderful photo and memories. It’s funny how we remember some things and not others. I can remember being places as a child but don’t remember where. I guess it’s because it wasn’t important to me as a kid, the geography of things. x

      That’s true, it’s the geography, I remember the sea, the caravan, the golf course, even the night we were attacked by a swarm of crane flies, but do you think for one moment I can remember where we were in the Country…nope!

    I don’t think buying a present like a candy bar means a child is poor. That may have been the intent of the ad, but I like many grown-ups have memories of saving my coins to buy presents. The Woolworth’s Five and Dime was where I shopped for Christmas presents.

    I don’t think saving coins for a small present always means a child is poor. I always bought presents for my mother at Woolworth’s Five & Dime. (We’re talking the 1950’s) I gave her little things like jewelry, corsages, etc. That may have been the intent of the ad, but I didn’t want my father giving me lots of money for gifts – then the present was from him. #MMBC

    what a lovely photo. Even though you don’t remember much, those memories are all beautiful. It is sad that you don’t have anyone around to check the detail with any more.
    You’ve got me thinking about what I remember about my childhood and it’s not a huge amount either! I remember a lot from my teens, but not much from when I was really little.

    It’s so wonderful that you have photos of your past. I sadly don’t have many of my own, you really ought to treasure these images. Thanks for linking up and for sharing with #MySundaySnapshot.
