Clifford's Garden 7/7

Just to one side of Clifford’s garden is a little lean-to and these are hanging inside it. How many of you remember the old tin bath in front of the fire, I certainly do until I was almost 11 years old.

Looks like a flat-bottom dinghy, Brian.
Brian Walbey: NO doubt kids used to use them for that if they lived near a river.

I remember these Brian
Brian Walbey: So do I Chris, ours was one of the smaller versions.

A fine presentation, Brian. I've only heard tales of the tin bath; never used one myself.
Brian Walbey: We had a smaller one until we got a house with a bathroom in 1955, we even had an outdoor loo!
We never had a tin bath or an outside toilet
Brian Walbey: We had both until my parents were lucky enough to get a brand new council house in 1955, we thought we were living in a palace with a proper bathroom.
I love the selective colouring
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal, it just seemed a nice thing to do.
We never had tin baths in Madagascar Brian. Very nice selective colouring here!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. We had a tin bath and an outdoor toilet until my parents were fortunate enough to get a new council house in 1955.
Neat find. Good work.
Have a nice week end!

Brian !!!! What have you done ... Seems you are succumbing to gimmicky, glitzy, famous for five seconds photographic trickery .... I'm appalled at your diving into this desperate style. Stay in your rightful position unless you are, of course going to post a month long series of ''colouring by numbers'' images.


Hee hee! I hope you loved my rant ...
Brian Walbey: Calm down Richard, but 'colour by numbers' sounds like a good idea, no perhaps not smile
I've only seen tin baths in movies. Looks great here.
Brian Walbey: It wasn't probably until the 60's at least before most homes in the country had their own bathrooms and indoor toilets. We got our first house with them in 1955, we thought we were living in a palace.
Lovely bit of colour popping, Brian. I was brought up the same way - tin bath and outside loo - in our case an earth privy, with the 'night soil' man coming to clean it out smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom. Whatever the rights and wrongs of society during our lifetimes at least every home has proper sanitary facilities these days.
Nice little bit of selective coloring!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
