The moment you mention the stubbornness of iPhone fans, many (may refer to: plural A quantifier that can be used with count nouns – often preceded by “as” or “too” or “so” or “that”; amounting to a large but indefinite number; “many temptations”; “a good) people will think of the funny VCR of HTCE EVO and iPhone4. In the early 70s the bedroom revolution was the continental (may refer to) quilt or duvet. People loved the practicality of the hatchback and with the seats folded down it was big enough to transport a double mattress and perfectly capable of carrying garden waste to the tip or a tent or two on holiday (holiday is a day set aside by custom or by law on which normal activities, especially business or work including school, are suspended or reduced).

Although still a state run monopoly (monopoly (from Greek μόνος, mónos, ‘single, alone’ and πωλεῖν, pōleîn, ‘to sell’) exists when a specific person or enterprise is the only supplier of a particular commodity), the telephone service was more modern in the 70s.

The proportion of men and women smoking cigarettes dropped gradually during the 70s. The economic profit brought by them satisfy various brands merchants as well as the wholesale electronics dealers. Ford Escord Mk2, 1979 Ford advertised the Capri as the car you have always promised yourself. Mastermind was also recognised by the toy industry.

4. Food and drink (drink (or beverage) is a liquid intended for human consumption) In 1976 Ford replaced the Cortina Mk III with the Mk IV. The glam rock era had faded by 1976 and Ford stylists (can refer to) gave the market something (may refer to) more sober, although the parent company (company, abbreviated as co., is a legal entity made up of an association of people, be they natural, legal, or a mixture of both, for carrying on a commercial or industrial enterprise)’s policy of sharing as much as possible between the UK Cortina and the German Ford Taunus may have also influenced the more prosaic styling. The brightly coloured MB Simon game was also a big seller in 1978. Initially, microwave ovens were only used by catering establishments. Bright colours also gave the shoes more of a space age look.

There was a new grill, a more attractive wood finish fascia and a new 1750cc engine.

Morris Marina TC, 1972 It may have been something to do with convenience. The rise of the mild cigarette was a 70s’ phenomenon. Teasmaid

£37. The word ‘fondue’ is derived from the French word, ‘fondre’, which means to blend. Three (3 () is a number, numeral, and glyph) basic types were around in the 60s and 70s.

British rival Matchbox had already introduced Superfast Wheels (its primitive form, a wheel is a circular block of a hard and durable material at whose center has been bored a circular hole through which is placed an axle bearing about which the wheel rotates) in 1969 and converted their whole range to them in the early 70s.

Launched in 1973, the Allegro was styled by internal stylist, Harris Mann.

Synthetic fillings were more common in Europe, but became available in the UK. People quickly took to them as they were more convenient.

The game went on sale in the early 70s and was a huge success.

*In 1971, the average household size in Great Britain was 2.9 people per household, with (or WITH may refer to: With, a preposition in English Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel With (novel), a novel by Donald) one-person households accounting for 18 per cent of all households.

Like Ford, Vauxhall offered a range (may refer to) of engines and options. At the same time competition from US cigarette manufacturers (is the production of products for use or sale using labor and machines, tools, chemical or biological processing or formulation and is the essence of secondary industry) started in earnest in the 70s.

Ford’s stylists had their fingers firmly on the pulse of the 70s’ car market.

It had been introduced in 1962 and took a staggering 24% of the cigarette market in 1968. That would (modal verbs of English are a small class of auxiliary verbs used mostly to express modality (properties such as possibility, obligation, etc.)) barely cover a tube ticket today. Retro style LED watches are now selling on the internet, reviving the original (is the aspect of created or invented works as being new or novel, and thus distinguishable from reproductions, clones, forgeries, or derivative works) digital watches from the early 70s.

Well, these programs can just applied in the commodities which are manufactured by Apple.

Oh and over two thirds of the money we spend on food goes to the big supermarkets – so much for the nation of shopkeepers. At the time people wanted to believe that the filter would protect them. Ticket (or tickets may refer to) to Wembley Cup Final: 1971: £2 2011: £115

There were health (is a state of physical, mental and social well-being in which disease and infirmity are absent) warnings about damage that could be caused to the back (human back is the large posterior area of the human body, rising from the top of the buttocks to the back of the neck and the shoulders) in later life, but the fashion did not last long enough for that to have an effect. Most people were still playing Russian Roulette and hoping that the chamber was empty. However, the Maxi never lived up to expectations. There was a facelift (facelift, technically known as a rhytidectomy (from Ancient Greek ῥυτίς (rhytis) “wrinkle” + ἐκτομή (ektome) “excision”, surgical removal of wrinkles), is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure used) in 1976 and it later became the Chrysler Avenger as the American parent began to assert itself more strongly.

In reality the Marina (marina (from Spanish [maˈɾina], Portuguese [maˈɾinɐ] and Italian [maˈriːna]: marina, “coast” or “shore”) is a dock or basin with moorings and supplies for yachts and small boats) sold considerably less well (well is an excavation or structure created in the ground by digging, driving, or drilling to access liquid resources, usually water) than expected.

The final facelift for the Cortina came in 1979. Remember that backward sloping rear (may refer to) roofline? Platform soles (may refer to: Sole (foot), the bottom of the foot Sole (shoe), the bottom supporting member of the shoe) were mainly worn by women and more fashionable men.

Rootes Group (Hillman, Singer, Sunbeam, Humber) launched the Hillman Avenger in 1970. The majority of the most popular (or social status is the quality of being well liked, admired or well known to a particular group) brands are filter tipped.

It was the phone most people had in the 70s and it is phone (telephone (derived from the Greek: τῆλε, tēle, “far” and φωνή, phōnē, “voice”, together meaning “distant voice”), or phone, is a telecommunications device that permits two or more users to conduct) you will remember from that decade. By 1971 though, it was knocked off the top spot by Players No 6.

Actually, this is disguised monopoly. iPhone mobile phone is always the best sellers in the world.
Once upon a time, orchestras required instruments. Microwave ovens

The idea was to move the handle (handle is a part of, or attachment to, an object that can be moved or used by hand) up and down (is the relative vertical direction opposed to up. Down may also refer to) to make (or MAKE may refer to: Make: (magazine), an American magazine and television program Make (software), a computer-assisted software engineering tool Make, Botswana, a small village in the Kalahari) the balls click together. By 1979, there were a variety of microwaves on the market, priced between 150 and 400. [500 to 1400 in today’s money].

If you have to find out advantage of iPhone mobile phone, it can only be the thousands of application programs (programme, or programming may refer to) provided by app store. Oh how times have changed.

In 2007, we spent £54 per week (I must admit I find that hard to believe, looking at my own till receipts, but still (still is an apparatus used to distill liquid mixtures by heating to selectively boil and then cooling to condense the vapor)). Ford sharpened up the style of the Mk IV with the similar looking Mk V, which nevertheless changed almost every body panel. The combination of flares (flare, also sometimes called a fusee, is a type of pyrotechnic that produces a bright light or intense heat without an explosion) and denim made flared jeans the fashion phenomenon of the decade.

It was all about breaking (or breakin’ may refer to) a secret code.

The first ‘Which’ report on microwave ovens was written in 1979. By the 1960s Sparklets specialised in diecast products for the domestic industry.

A food processor added a choice of blades and attachments to a standard blender.

The Mastermind TV programme hosted by Magnús Magnússon had huge audiences in the 70s. Both this and pine were much (may refer to: Much (TV channel), a cable network in Canada and its domestic and international spin-offs Much (album), an album by Christian band Ten Shekel Shirt Much the Miller’s Son, one of Robin) bigger in the following two decades. In 1971 Ford launched the car that was to represent the 1970s, the Cortina Mk III. It is no wonder that the teasmade was a luxury. Most people can remember Green (is the color between blue and yellow on the visible spectrum) Shield Stamps, but there were other schemes.

Once you had collected enough you exchanged the books (book is a medium for recording information in the form of writing or images, typically composed of many pages (made of papyrus, parchment, vellum, or paper) bound together and protected by a cover) for gifts.

Weekly cost in 2007? The box depicting a bearded man and woman in Asian dress carried an air of mysteriousness about it, suggesting supreme intelligence was needed to play the game. BL found it hard (may refer to: Hardness, resistance of physical materials to deformation or fracture) to find (or FIND or Finding may refer to) a replacement for it. So hard in fact that they failed to do so until 1973. It took the UK youth bike market by storm and probably saved Raleigh (is the capital of the state of North Carolina and the seat of Wake County in the United States) from financial disaster.

Benson and Hedges (hedge or hedgerow is a line of closely spaced shrubs and sometimes trees, planted and trained to form a barrier or to mark the boundary of an area, such as between neighbouring properties) Silk Cut, pictured bottom middle, started this trend.


In 1974, 24 per cent of men and 13 per cent of women in Britain who smoked regularly were classed as heavy smokers (is a noun derived from smoke and may have the following specialized meanings: Someone who smokes tobacco or cannabis, cigarette substitutes, or various other drugs Smoking (cooking), smoker, an), whereas in 2008 the figures were 7 per cent of men and only one in 20 women.

Ouch. Haynes wanted the two door version to appeal to the under thirty (30 () is the natural number following 29 and preceding 31) age group. The football game Subbuteo gained plastic (is material consisting of any of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic compounds that are malleable and so can be molded into solid objects) figures (may refer to) in 1967 and in the 70s was available in up to fifty different team strips.

The 70s gave us digital watches and pocket calculators and by the middle of the decade electronic toys and games as well. Gallon of petrol: 1971: 33p 2011: £6 We’ve already got the strikes and the recession, so to earn £650 a week and spend only £46 of it would make it all worthwhile. In the 70s though, sales of tea bags (bag (also known regionally as a sack) is a common tool in the form of a non-rigid container) took off.

The old fashioned lettered exchanges disappeared in the late 60s and the new phones were equipped for the strangely termed ‘all figure numbering’.

However, as with the transistor radio, Japanese firms quickly exploited the technology.

The original device was called a ‘Prana’ Sparklet Syphon, and the Company stressed that it was as easy for a housemaid in Bayswater as for an orderly in South Africa to use the device.

Chrome (may refer to) plated tubular steel furniture had a brief period of being (philosophy, being means the material or immaterial existence of a thing) the latest thing. Furniture Oxford University physicist, Professor Nicholas Kurti gave a dramatic demonstration of microwave cooking with his reverse baked Alaska, or frozen Florida, which had ice cream on the outside and hot filling on the inside.

However, its roots go back to the era of the Boer War. Then computers reproduced the sounds of symphonies. Does anyone remember Blue Star, Gift Coupon, Happy Clubs, Thrift Stamp, Uneedus Bonus, Universal Sales Promotions or Yellow Stamps?

The ultimate piece of kit that most (may refer to) people wanted in the mid 70s was a “Music Centre”. For real authenticity, source the genuine article from the 70s on eBay.

It’s never going to happen of course, but it’s a nice dream. This was a high priced luxury item at the time. Colour Television Sets Which?

First class stamp: 1971: 3p 2011: 44p Well not exactly new, they had been used in the USA since the 20s. The new Viva, called the HC, was still a small (may refer to) car and in the Escort class (or The Class may refer to), nevertheless it looked wide, low and stylish. *In 1970, there were 340,000 first marriages in England and Wales.

Britain’s best selling cars from the 70s

In 1970 Vauxhall revised it again.

£52 per week in 2007, £5 per week in 1971. Ford Capri (P-ree, Italian: [ˈkaːpri] / Neapolitan: [ˈkɑːpri]) is an island located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrento Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy) 2000GT, 1972 Despite our collective obsession with labels and fashion, we only spent £22 per week on clothes in 2007.

Although primitive devices (device is usually a constructed tool) for automatically making tea were available since Victorian times (is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in an apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, into the future) and leading manufacturer Goblin made teasmades since the thirties, they were never considered essentials. TI’s first prototype hand held calculator, the Cal Tech, demonstrated the potential of the new device. Ford won the sales war and the Cortina was the best (or The Best may refer to) selling car of the decade, with the Escort in second (second (symbol: s, abbreviation: sec) is the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI), commonly understood and historically defined as ​1⁄86400 of a day – this factor derived) place. The Goblin model shown here cost £27.18 (£265 in today’s money). The first portable, as opposed to pocket sized, calculator was the Sharp (or SHARP may refer to) QT-8B.

Star Wars was in the cinema in 1977 and a host of Star Wars inspired merchandise followed. The UK’s top four manufacturers all introduced new models leading up to and around 1970.

It’s hard to explain why, they were more expensive and rarely used in the way originally intended – to remove the tea from the pot once it was brewed. In 1977, Donald Knuth, the American computer scientist responsible for some learned texts in the world of computing, published a formula that guaranteed a correct guess in five goes.

Tetley had tried introducing them to the UK twice, once (means a one-time occurrence) in the 30s and again in the 50s, but they were seen as a bit of a joke. Continental quilts

Towards the end of the decade, cane and rattan furniture (refers to movable objects intended to support various human activities such as seating (e.g., chairs, stools, and sofas), eating (tables), and sleeping (e.g., beds)) started to gain a small following. Even as late as 1973 the Guinness Book of Records described nicotine as an “anodyne to civilisation”. We could throw our tea strainers away. Naturally the Sparklets Soda Syphons were a big part of the business, but Sparklets also made diecast parts for washing machines, hairdryers and vacuum cleaners, as well as for cars (car (or automobile) is a wheeled motor vehicle used for transportation).

The anti-smoking group (group is a number of people or things that are located, gathered, or classed together), ASH, was founded in 1970 and took a lead in alerting the public to the dangers of smoking.

There were concerns about what would happen if the microwaves escaped and confusion over whether the ovens (oven is a thermally insulated chamber used for the heating, baking, or drying of a substance, and most commonly used for cooking) were radioactive.

The Sparklets Soda Syphon was a hit at 70s parties. *In 1971, UK residents made 6.7 million holiday trips abroad. Home Music Centre Style was all important to Ford’s selling strategy and in 1975 they gave the Escort a new squared off body and models near the top of the range had square headlamps too.

Austin Maxi, 1972

Granada TV’s report “Who’ll be watching Coronation Street in 1984?” expressed concerns (may refer to) their advertising revenue might be at risk.

Cigarettes were a big part (parts or PART may refer to) of life (is a characteristic that distinguishes physical entities that have biological processes, such as signaling and self-sustaining processes, from those that do not, either because such functions have) in the 70s.

Other toys with their origins in the 50s and earlier were discovered by new generations of children (a child (plural children) is a human being between the stages of birth and puberty, or between the developmental period of infancy and puberty).

Klackers The 70s was the decade when people did finally accept the risks of smoking and the proportion of the population who smoked fell quite significantly.

The flare was from the knee and reached exaggerated proportions (proportion or proportional may refer to) in the middle years of the 70s. Whilst the 1100/1300 range was chalking up annual sales of 100,000+ units every year, the Allegro failed to achieve more than 65,000. He claimed the design (design is a plan or specification for the construction of an object or system or for the implementation of an activity or process, or the result of that plan or specification in the form of a) did alter, in reality BL made very few changes to the design throughout the 70s.

The Chopper became distinctly unfashionable in the 80s, when (may refer to: Usually a question whose answer refers to time, period or phase) BMX became the latest craze (may refer to: Craze, alternative name for fad Craziness, alternative name for insanity Crazing, a network of fine cracks). The Sparklets bulb (botany, a bulb is structurally a short stem with fleshy leaves or leaf bases that function as food storage organs during dormancy. (In gardening, plants with other kinds of storage organ are also) method may not have changed much since the days of the Boer War, but the style (is a manner of doing or presenting things) of the syphon moved with the times.

Flares were derived from the hippy fashion for loon pants of the late 60s. It introduced a few practical improvements.

*In 1970, food and non-alcoholic drinks was the largest category of expenditure, accounting for 21 per cent of UK total domestic household expenditure. Laurence Moss, the estate agent husband of man-eating Beverly in “Abigail’s Party” drove a Mini, getting a new one every year. It was almost a sports car, with a comfortable four-seater saloon cabin, gorgeous fastback styling and a price tag that the man in the street could afford.

Klackers were also marketed as Ker-knockers, Clackers and Klickies. Dynatron made one of the first, the HFC38 Stereo/Audio Cassette System, launched in 1972. In spite of the name, it had no connection with the Mastermind (may refer to) television programme originally hosted by Magnus Magnussen, although many people bought (is a 1931 American Pre-Code drama film produced and released by Warner Bros. and directed by Archie Mayo) the game thinking it did.

Bunch of bananas: 1971: 18p 2011: 65p If you fancied something a little sportier, there was the Austin (is the capital city of the U.S. state of Texas, as well as the seat and largest city of Travis County, with portions extending into Hays and Williamson counties) 1300GT which was a tuned up version of the basic car with a black vinyl roof. A typical 22″ colour set would have cost £300 in 1967, or around £3000 in today’s money (is any item or verifiable record that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts, such as taxes, in a particular country or socio-economic context) – equivalent to a top of the line 50+ inch LCD or LED HDTV set. Furniture from the seventies was bigger and chunkier than furniture from the 60s.

Mini Clubman The 746 telephone was an upgraded version of the 706 phone or ‘Modern (may refer to) Telephone (telephone (derived from the Greek: τῆλε, tēle, “far” and φωνή, phōnē, “voice”, together meaning “distant voice”), or phone, is a telecommunications device that permits two or more users to conduct)’ that the GPO introduced to customers in the early 60s.

As part of our renewed appreciation of all things (or The Thing may refer to) 70s, the teasmade is back in fashion. There was a bizarre selection of different style front grilles complemented with rounded rectangular headlamps matched inside the car with a rounded square steering wheel, called a Quartic. Striped upholstery fabric was popular.

Obviously that includes expenses like (English, the word like has a very flexible range of uses, ranging from conventional to non-standard) mortgage payments, rent and energy bills. As pocket (pocket is a bag- or envelope-like receptacle either fastened to or inserted in an article of clothing to hold small items) calculators moved from executive’s briefcases to school children’s satchels, there was controversy over whether children could still do sums. Introduced on BBC 2 for Wimbledon coverage on July 1, 1967. The Cortina disappeared entirely in 1982 to make way for the Sierra, dubbed the ‘jelly mould’ car at the time.

In the 70s, the home (home, or domicile, is a living space used as a permanent or semi-permanent residence for an individual, family, household or several families in a tribe) telephone was still a luxury (may refer to: Luxury goods, an economic good or service for which demand increases more than proportionally as income rises Luxury tax, tax on products not considered essential, such as expensive) in the UK. The General Post Office (GPO) had a monopoly on telephone services and anyone who wanted a phone needed to rent one from the GPO. The prestige motoring experience was completed by a a steering wheel and gear knob covered in simulated leather.

Medical research showed otherwise, even as early as the 60s.

Green Shield Stamps were almost everywhere in the Britain of the 60s and 70s.

It was in the seventies that fondue parties really took off in the UK. Originally a reminder of a Swiss dish tried on a skiing holiday, fondue ((UK: , US: , French: [fɔ̃dy]) is a Swiss melted cheese dish served in a communal pot (caquelon or fondue pot) over a portable stove (réchaud) heated with a candle or spirit lamp, and eaten by) parties (may refer to: Partie, a card game term Douglas Partie (born 1961), American volleyball player Partita, or partie, a single-instrumental piece of music, or dance suite) soon became the up-to-the minute thing to do; but by the 80s, it was decidedly naff.

The other big trend ran in the opposite direction.

In 1971 that would have cost about £4, but then I doubt we would have used them as much in those days anyway.

1971 vs 2011: what you get for your money

People smoked them in large numbers (number is a mathematical object used to count, measure, and label).

It achieved a creditable fourth position in sales in the 70s, but was not capable of rescuing BL from its financial troubles. In 1970, when Edward Heath had just become Prime Minister and The Beatles were breaking up, for men it was 68.7 years and for women it was 75 years (year is the orbital period of the Earth moving in its orbit around the Sun); 40 years on, these figures have shifted substantially. In 1973 Invtica was awarded ‘Game of the Year’ for Mastermind. Well, we spent an average of £12 a week on this kind (may refer to: Created kind, often abbreviated to kinds, a creationist category of life forms Kind (horse) (foaled 2001), an Irish Thoroughbred racehorse Kind (type theory), the type of types in a) of thing in 2007, which is equivalent to £1 in 1971 (OK, OK so we didn’t have mobiles and broadband back then, but that’s not really the point) Cigarettes More traditional toys (toy is an item that is used in play, especially one designed for such use) such as Hornby trains and Meccano continued to find a market.

This revolution was reflected in the small screen when ITV’s George and Mildred’s neighbours bought a Grandstand game for Christmas.

This was a record player, cassette tape recorder and radio combined. When Austin-Rover dropped the Allegro range in 1982 to make room for the Maestro there were few sad faces. Jimmy Tarbuck’s advertisements for Sharp microwaves helped promote microwave cooking in the UK in the early 80s.

Fondue originated in Switzerland and the classic (classic is an outstanding example of a particular style; something of lasting worth or with a timeless quality; of the first or highest quality, class, or rank – something that exemplifies its class) fondue is always made with Swiss cheeses: Emmenthal and Gruyère.

Vauxhall Firenza, 1971

The black grill (or grille may refer to) was made from plastic. The Austin/Morris 1100/1300 range was a top selling car in the 1960s.

It certainly looked 70s. The case had an integral carry handle and the phone came in a more modern plastic.

The Avenger was mechanically unexciting, but offered a stylish new body with black (is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light) grill with coke bottle styling and a sloping rear end. Hillman Avenger (Avengers, The Avenger or The Avengers may refer to) 1300DL, 1975 In 1970, 55% of men and 44% of women smoked cigarettes. 5. Restaurants and hotels

In 1969, Embassy (diplomatic mission or foreign mission is a group of people from one state or an organisation present in another state to represent the sending state/organisation officially in the receiving state) Filter (right) was the most popular brand. The Viva had been around since 1963 and had already had one facelift. Electronic chess games also appeared in the mid seventies, but the game that first captured the public’s imagination in the UK was the Adman Grandstand.

Electronic games, such as MB Simon and Adman Grandstand, went on sale in the UK in the second half of the 70s.

It not only brings the success of Apple commodities, but also give impetus to the revival of many software developers and accessories manufacturers. The retro (style is a style that is imitative or consciously derivative of lifestyles, trends, or art forms from the historical past, including in music, modes, fashions, or attitudes) style soda syphon (or soda siphon), once a symbol of kitsch and bad taste, is now the height of retro cool. Ford also sold over (may refer to) one million Escorts in the 1970s. The trousers were often hipsters, sitting on the hips rather than the waist, and tight fitting.

Fondue set Just like its cousins from the 60s, the 1100s and 1300s were spacious, reliable and mechanically simple.

In the1970s there was a basic range comprising a Mini 850 and a Mini 1000, with 850cc and 1000cc engines. There was an element of thirties retro in the style of some of the shoes, which echoed the thirties’ love of two-tone or co-respondent black and cream or brown and cream colours. *In 1970/71, there were 621,000 students in the UK in higher education.

Invented in the 1890s, Sparklets bulbs were used during the Boer War.

LED digital watch (watch is a timepiece intended to be carried or worn by a person) King (or king regnant, is the title given to a male monarch in a variety of contexts) size cigarettes also went down market and were available in the cheaper brands. However, where the Cortina emphasised size and width, the Allegro (may refer to: Allegro (music), a tempo marking indicate to play fast, quickly and bright Allegro (ballet), brisk and lively movement) was rounded and dumpy. The teasmade was a luxury item in the 70s household.

For most people (people is a plurality of persons considered as a whole, as is the case with an ethnic group or nation) in the UK the microwave revolution did not begin until well into the 80s. Mattel did not have their own way for long with Hot Wheels. One of the first to capture the imagination of the UK public (public relations and communication science, publics are groups of individual people, and the public (a.k.a. the general public) is the totality of such groupings) was Adman Grandstand (grandstand is a large and normally permanent structure for seating spectators, most often at a racetrack), which could play (most commonly refers to: Play (activity), an activity done for enjoyment by animals, including humans Play (theatre), structured literary form of theatrePlay may refer also to) a variety of sports (includes all forms of competitive physical activity or games which, through casual or organised participation, at least in part aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while), including a version of the Pong arcade game.

Doubtless the fall in heavy smoking has played a part in that.

They were worn by men and women.

Austin 1300GT, 1971

British automotive fashions changed.

Sparklets Streamline, with hammered finish 1940s
In 1920 Sparklets Ltd was acquired by BOC, the British Oxygen Company.

The first LED watch was marketed in the US by watchmaker, Hamilton, under (may refer to) the brand name ‘Pulsar’ in the Fall of 1971. Tea bags were new in the 70s. The Austin All-aggro was another name for it. Imagine how svelte we would all look (look is to use sight to perceive an object) if that still only set us back £2. Jack Kilby of Texas Instruments developed the integrated circuit technology that made the pocket calculator possible in the sixties.

This includes things like education and health, insurance and whatever else we spend our money on. Anyway, in 2007, these miscellaneous items (may refer to) cost (production, research, retail, and accounting, a cost is the value of money that has been used up to produce something or deliver a service, and hence is not available for use anymore. business, the) a whopping £128 per week. LED watch The Chopper (may refer to) was a distinctly different bike for young people and was a first choice Christmas present.

Now manufacturers too adopted the same (may refer to: Sameness or identity) circuitry for play, and the age of electronic games began.

BL made a series of mistakes, the worst of which was to replace their best selling Austin/Morris 1100/1300 range with the blob shaped Allegro. Like Ford they followed the same approach: a basic rugged car with an up to the minute body. Packet of cigarettes: 1971: 27p 2011: £7

In 2007, we spent an average of £57 per week on things like holidays, cinema trips, sports activities and gambling. The launch of the BBC 2 “full” color service took place on December 2, 1967. Loaf of bread: 1971: 9½p 2011: £1.10 Light ale was a popular alternative to lager at the time.

It starred in 1999 in the 1970s’ revival comedy, ‘The Grimleys’ as Shane Titley’s car. Vauxhall was like Ford, a British (may refer to) car maker (or Makers may refer to) with an American parent – General Motors. To give up or not, and to inhale or not, were big topics of conversation.

You could choose from from L (basic), XL (more luxury), GT (sporty), GXL (luxurious) to the ultimate Cortina, the 2000E.

In 1972 these brands (below) made up 94% of all cigarettes sold (in order of tar content, lowest first): Very quickly a host of manufacturers entered into the growing pocket calculator market (may refer to: Market (economics) Market economy Marketplace, a physical marketplace or public market). Meanwhile, the latest research (is “creative and systematic work undertaken to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of humans, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new) shows that the average household income in 2006 was about £650.

These are the top ten best selling (are activities related to selling or the number of goods or services sold in a given targeted time period) UK cars of the 70s.

To prepare the teasmade ready for use tea, or teabags, fashionable in the 70s, were added to the pot and water (is an inorganic, transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance, which is the main constituent of Earth’s hydrosphere and the fluids of most living organisms) into the kettle and then the alarm was set for the time you wanted to wake up to enjoy your freshly made pot of tea.

At the top of the range was the sporty Firenza SL. Soda syphon

Experts could make them clack at the bottom and top in a circular movement, but safety (is the state of being “safe” (from French sauf), the condition of being protected from harm or other non-desirable outcomes) concerns saw their early demise. Most teasmades (sometimes incorrectly spelled ‘teasmaid’) comprised a teapot, kettle and clock. Electronic Calculator (electronic calculator is typically a portable electronic device used to perform calculations, ranging from basic arithmetic to complex mathematics)

They made a noise when they clacked together, hence the name. Launched in 1969, the Capri sold well throughout the 70s. It was expensive to make, and there was no way to do it yourself. Before the introduction of Sparklets bulbs, carbonated, or aerated water, as the Victorians preferred to call it, was a luxury product. Raleigh Chopper

By the end of the decade part of the charm of the car was that it had not changed. If you forgot to put the spout into the teapot some 70s models poured boiling water on to whatever the teasmade was stood on. Once the tea was brewed, the alarm sounded to wake you up, if the mechanism had not already woken you. The Invicta Mastermind game was a huge seller in the 70s. If there was a car that summed up the mood of the early 70s perfectly it was the Cortina Mk III.

He wanted the interior styling to be exotic and wild. Fondue sets are available again as everything 70s is fun once more.

The first colour sets became available in Britain in 1967, when BBC2 started broadcasting in colour. (Note BBC1 and ITV didn’t go colour until 1969.)

There were (and wer are archaic terms for adult male humans and were often used for alliteration with wife as “were and wife” in Germanic-speaking cultures, and in the Old English construction werman, paired) also concerns that TV audiences would drop, with more people using their TVs to play video games instead. Somehow BL ended up producing a much bigger car than intended (and its variations, may refer to: Intendant, the holder of a public administrative office in several countries Intended, a person engaged or betrothed to be married Intended reader, a member of a), even though it shared some of its mechanical heritage with the venerable Morris Minor. It sold steadily throughout the 1970s. Male life expectancy is now 77.8 years, and for women it is 81.9 years.

They acted in the best interest of consumers and recommended only that people should give up. There were conflicting stories circulating concerning the safety of other forms of smoking, such as pipe or cigar smoking (is a practice in which a substance is burned and the resulting smoke breathed in to be tasted and absorbed into the bloodstream): “Was it safer than cigarettes?”, “Was it safe if you didn’t inhale?” and “Was it worth waiting for a safe cigarette?”. “Which” did not sit on the fence and told members as directly as possible (is the condition or fact of being possible) that the only safe course of action was to give up. You can still get seventies favourites such as Skol, Carling Black Label (label (as distinct from signage) is a piece of paper, plastic film, cloth, metal, or other material affixed to a container or product, on which is written or printed information or symbols about) (they paid a consultant millions of pounds to recommend that the ‘Black Label’ was dropped some time in the 90s), Carlsberg and Tennant’s Pilsner, though whether (interrogative word or question word is a function word used to ask a question, such as what, when, where, who, which, whom, whose, why, whether and how . They are sometimes called wh-words, because) it is the same, who could say? In the early 70s they were an expensive status symbol.

1. Transport (or transportation is the movement of humans, animals and goods from one location to another) *In 1974, 26 per cent of men and 13 per cent of women in Great (may refer to) Britain who smoked regularly were classed as heavy smokers. Vauxhall (VOKS-(h)awl) is a district of South London, England) dropped it in 1979.

Never before had the movie makers cashed in so much on the toy market, it was a portent for the new decade. Texas Instruments (may refer to) launched their own model, the TI-2500 Datamath, in 1972. Names (name is a term used for identification) such as “Slumberland Fjord” and “Banlite Continental” left no doubt as to the origin (origins, or original may refer to).

However, the Mastermind Board Game made by Invicta (may refer to) in 1973 had no connection with the Mastermind TV show. It was also lighter and had improved circuitry.

Now tea bags are almost universal – so they must have been a good idea (philosophy, ideas are usually taken as mental representational images of some object) after all!

2. Recreation and culture

Green Shield (shield is a piece of personal armour held in the hand, which may or may not be strapped to the wrist or forearm) Stamps

The first pocket calculators came onto the market towards the end of 1970. Smoking in the 1970s Now, band geeks are playing iPhones.
Stanford University’s newest ensemble is called Mopho, short for Mobile Phone Orchestra. Its conductor, a veteran is obsessed with making electronic music (is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time) as mobile (may refer to) as possible. “The iPhone holds a lot of potential for what kind of music can be made and how it can be made,” Wang says.
In MoPhO’s first show at January’s Macworld, 10 iPhone players rocked the intro to “Stairway to Heaven” wearing fingerless gloves with Altec Lansing Orbit speakers sewn in.* Wang envisions a day when they’ll perform dressed in speakers from head to toe.
We have noticed the spending power brought by fashion once more.

The Sparklets Soda (or SODA may refer to) Syphon (siphon (from Ancient Greek: σίφων, “pipe, tube”, also spelled nonetymologically syphon) is any of a wide variety of devices that involve the flow of liquids through tubes) was originally used as a way of bringing sparkling or aerated water to hot climates at the far reaches of the British Empire.

*In 1970, life expectancy at birth for males in the UK was 68.7 years and for females was 75.0 years. The seventies was still a decade when modern was the favourite look. Klackers comprised two acrylic balls, often brightly coloured, on a string with a small handle in the middle. A few years earlier, the first calculators and LED digital watches were marketed.

Although, the Which report was intended to convince people to stop smoking, it gave an enormous boost to Silk Cut sales. (In fact there is no evidence to suggest mild cigarettes are any better for you.).

The microwave (are a form of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths ranging from about one meter to one millimeter; with frequencies between 300 MHz (1 m) and 300 GHz (1 mm). Different sources define) oven was invented by Percy Spencer in the late 40s. Like most crazes, Klackers disappeared as quickly as they appeared. To protect the expensive and delicate iPhone, you need to buy different iPhone accessories at least. The 70s also saw a greater proportion of foreign cars on the road.

Both traditional oven makers, Creda and Belling and electronics giants Philips, Hitachi, Sanyo, Sharp and Toshiba, made microwave ovens in the 70s.

That accolade also went to another doll in 1971, Katie KopyKat; Katie copied everything (is all that exists; the opposite of nothing, or its complement) you wrote.

There was an estate version with fake wood (is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees and other woody plants) panels on the outside and a sports 1275 GT version.

Until the 70s, most people in the UK made up beds with sheets and blankets.

The Allegro was not a great hit with the public.

They could cause bruised hands and arms and the balls could shatter into dangerously sharp shards of plastic. The average household weekly spend on transport in 2007 was £62. In 1971, cigarette (cigarette is a narrow cylinder containing psychoactive material, usually tobacco, that is rolled into thin paper for smoking) manufacturers agreed to put a mild health warning (may refer to) on the packets (left) – “WARNING by HM Government SMOKING CAN DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH”.

At 1971 prices, that would cost around £6 again – probably about the price of a large bucket of popcorn today. This was the time when people got their first taste of the digital (usually refers to something using digits, particularly binary digits) lifestyle we enjoy today. The brochure cooed about such refinements as reclining seats, an electric clock and push button radio.

The Raleigh Chopper brought the style of Easy Rider to the backstreets of Britain in the 70s. So because of its continued strong sales in the first (or 1st is the ordinal form of the number one (#1)) years of the 70s, the 1100/1300 finds itself at number six. By 1979 you could choose from 1100, 1300, 1600, 1800 and 2000cc models (or modeling may refer to: Conceptual model, a representation of a system using general rules and concepts Physical model or plastic model, a physical representation in three dimensions of an). Pint of bitter: 1971: 11p 2011: £3.05

There was little (is a synonym for small size and may refer to) attempt to recreate the past, although in a decade of contradictions, reproduction furniture had a growing niche following (is a 1998 British neo-noir crime thriller film written and directed by Christopher Nolan).

BL’s executives originally planned the Marina as a replacement for the aging Morris Minor and a serious competitor for the Escort. There was an unfortunate side effect to the 70s’ style lettering on the boot: to some ‘Austin Allegro’ looked like ‘Rustin Allegro’. Lego was as popular as ever. Magnavox Odyssey was quite sophisticated; it offered range of different games, some of which required props.

He first demonstrated this dessert in 1969, showing how microwaves easily passed through ice, causing little heat, but the filling made from brandy and marmalade absorbed them and heated up more quickly. Where Ford got 70s’ style right with the Cortina (may refer to), BL got it wrong with the Allegro. Drink

By 1960, Marguerite Patten claimed the fondue was becoming popular.

Her ‘Cookery in Colour’ featured fondue recipes with a decidedly English twist: ‘Cheddar Fondue’ and ‘Tomato Fondue’, as well as the classic ‘Gruyère’.

For the 70s there were some detail improvements (is the process of a thing moving from one state to a state considered to be better, usually through some action intended to bring about that better state) and some great 70s’ colours including purple and bright orange.

The big change in play in the 70s though was the advent of electronic games (game is a structured form of play, usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes used as an educational tool).

The original design, launched in 1969, was very plain (geography, a plain is a flat, sweeping landmass that generally does not change much in elevation) looking and not liked by the public.

You could buy cigarettes in a bewildering number of different sizes: international, king size, regular, intermediate, mini and sub-mini.

BL replaced this best seller with the Allegro in 1973. Models with a separate convection heating element were even more expensive.

Ford Cortina Mk V, 1979

It was a small car with neat American influenced body styling (is a manner of doing or presenting things). www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1328760/Britains-oldest-…

There were spin-off cricket and snooker games too. Whilst children loved the Klackers, or Ker-knock-ers, parents (parent is a caregiver of the offspring in their own species) and teachers were concerned about the safety aspects. Partly designed by Alec Issigonis, it was spacious and handled well.

Pint of milk: 1971: 6p 2011: 49p I say “mild” because Professor Sir Richard Doll (doll is a model of a human, often used as a toy for children, and an artistic hobby for adults)’s research showed that of 1,357 men with lung cancer, 99.5% were smokers. Or as “Which” chillingly put it – you had as much chance of dying before you were 44 if you smoked, as a serviceman had of being killed in the Second World (world is the planet Earth and all life on it, including human civilization) War. Teak was still the favourite wood throughout the decade, although pine was getting an increasingly strong middle (or The Middle may refer to: Centre (geometry), the point equally distant from the outer limits) class following. Firstly there was a clear plastic dial showing only numbers.

So in 2007, the total average (colloquial language, an average is a single number taken as representative of a list of numbers) household (household consists of one or more people who live in the same dwelling and share meals) spend per week (week is a time unit equal to seven days) was a little under £460. 7. Communication

Learning the lessons of the past they wanted (may refer to: Fugitive, a person wanted by law enforcement authorities Wanted poster, a poster put up to inform the public of one or more criminals whom authorities wish to apprehendWanted may also) to give (may refer to: making someone get or receive something from someone) it plenty of style and hired ex-Ford stylist, Roy Haynes. Vanden Plas 1500 (Allegro)


Mostly they were filled with down or duck feathers. In the later 70s, lager began to take hold. However, the Chopper attracted criticism for some aspects of its safety. The Chopper was revised with safety improvements to become the Mark 2 in 1972.

Britain’s oldest colour telly ‘still going strong’ 42 years on, says 69-year-old owner Another 70s’ craze that had its origins in the 60s was Klackers, or Clackers: two acrylic balls that were made to click together.

*In 1971, the proportion of babies born to women aged under 25 in England and Wales was 47 per cent (369,600 live births).

The Capri offered the motoring public something entirely new.

Freezers (refrigerator (colloquially fridge) consists of a thermally insulated compartment and a heat pump (mechanical, electronic or chemical) that transfers heat from the inside of the fridge to its) and frozen food were available in the 60s, but sales of freezers took off in the 70s.

Autumn colours (or colour (Commonwealth English), is the characteristic of visual perception described through color categories, with names such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple) were in vogue: browns, beiges and oatmeal. Microwave ovens were not available in Britain until the end of the 70s, even then they did not catch on that quickly. Ford (Motor Company, commonly known as Ford, is an American multinational automaker that has its main headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit) also launched the ground breaking Capri in 1969, which brought sports car styling to the average motorist. Also worth noting is that Rothman’s advertised their cigarettes as for “…when you know what doing are doing” – a bit ironic considering the tar content! King size cigarettes were increasingly popular.

Launched in 1974, Ceefax (was the world’s first teletext information service and a forerunner to the current BBC Red Button service) went live with 30 pages and was the first teletext service in the world.

In the 70s, freezer ownership increased dramatically.

This styling misjudgment certainly contributed to BL’s collapse in 1975. The classic American inspired coke bottle styling was combined with plenty of chrome trim (may refer to). Mars bar: 1971: 2p 2011: 60p Electronic games 1970′s inventions that changed our way of life
Technology (is the sum of techniques, skills, methods, and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation), Fashion (is a popular aesthetic expression in a certain time and context, especially in clothing, footwear, lifestyle, accessories, makeup, hairstyle and body proportions) and Toys played an increasingly important part in people’s lives in the 70s.

By 1980, 42% of men and 37% of women smoked. (Today (may refer to: Day of the present, the time that is perceived directly, often called now Current era, present day)’s figures are 27% and 25% respectively). Then again, we’d probably have to be clad head to toe in denim, so maybe £22 is a price worth paying.

However, Ford went one stage further with the Escort (may refer to), as with the Cortina, they offered a range of basic saloons and some sporty and luxury models as well. The Space Hopper, the Raleigh Chopper and Mattel’s model cars with Hot Wheels made their debut in the 60s, but in the 70s achieved their highest popularity. BL offered a more upmarket version, the Clubman, with a squared off nose.

The Avenger also had some very distinctive L shaped rear a lamp clusters. Both Player’s No6 and Embassy had king size versions (may refer to: In computing: Software version, a set of numbers that identify a unique evolution of a computer program VERSION (CONFIG.SYS directive), a configuration directive in FreeDOSIn music:). In my opinion, iPhone mobile phone is probably the most amazing commodity (economics, a commodity is an economic good or service that has full or substantial fungibility: that is, the market treats instances of the good as equivalent or nearly so with no regard to who) which is born to have less good quality than other mobile phones, but it’s top seller (are activities related to selling or the number of goods or services sold in a given targeted time period) among other mobile phones.

The grand daddy of all the computer games was the Magnavox Odyssey, which was launched in 1972.

Some inferior and out of technology leather cases also become luxury goods.

Magazine named Silk (is a natural protein fiber, some forms of which can be woven into textiles) Cut as the mildest UK cigarette in 1972. The Viva (may refer to) really was a car for the 70s. They also started to kick the habit in large numbers too.

We all know that when we buy an iPhone mobile phone, we are not willing to just pay for a phone. BL chose to drop the Austin and Morris (may refer to) labels and the car was now just called the ‘Mini’. He initially found it difficult to get a manufacturer to take on his idea, but eventually managed to persuade small UK games maker, Invicta to make it.

The new Cortina was bigger and better than the outgoing Mk II. For most people though, they were simply too expensive. However, it was more of US than an UK phenomenon. The Mini (Mini is a small economy car produced by the English-based British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000) continued in production for another two decades before being replaced by the new Mini in 2000.

Like the Cortina, there were several styling revisions, but the basic look and personality remained the same. In 1971, you’d have got the lot for £13.

If you bought your groceries at certain shops the retailer gave you stamps (or Stamps or Stamping may refer to) to stick in a book. It introduced the public to a familiar, but primitive, electronic bat and ball (ball is a round object (usually spherical, but can sometimes be ovoid) with various uses) game. 1970s major household expenses

Scalextric was improved with new cars in the 70s and was as popular as ever. The seventies had its share of fads.

1970s: Fewer cars but more smokers In 1980 the Escort was upgraded to a the Mk III for the new decade.

“Which” never published a report (report is a document that presents information in an organized format for a specific audience and purpose) comparing one cigarette brand with another.

Customers had a choice of three phones: the 746, the smaller 776 Compact Telephone and the modern looking Trimphone.

They replaced the neatly minimalist Cortina Mk II, driven by Michael Caine in Get Carter, with the glamorous Mk III in 1970. Ceefax: 1974 Ford’s graduated model range offered a huge choice (involves decision making) of trim, style and engine size.

In 1970 around 100,000 were sold, which was three times as many as in 1967. The 746 telephone was the British GPO’s main telephone for the 1970s.

The Magimix from the 70s was the first UK example.

It scooped Toy of the Year in 1974 and 1975.

The gearbox was awful and the 1500cc engine (engine or motor is a machine designed to convert one form of energy into mechanical energy) was not powerful enough (may refer to) for the car. Thirty-eight years ago that would have cost a mere fiver. Sindy continued to be a popular toy for girls and won Toy of the Year in 1970. Whichever way you look at it though, that time warp is looking rather appealing. It was originally a high priced gadget; by the end of the decade LED watches were almost throw away items and the more familiar LCD display was gaining ground.

By the middle of the decade, people used them to add up the weekly (week is a time unit equal to seven days) shopping at the supermarket. Food (is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for an organism) processors

In 1971, that £62 would have been just £6. Indeed Mastermind was taken seriously by the academic world. Although Alex Issigonis’ masterpiece the Mini was eleven years old by 1970, it was still one of Britain’s best selling cars.

John Player Special, with its distinctive black packaging, was a rival for Benson and Hedges.

However, none of them made it into the top ten. Collectors of cigarette packets from the 70s should look out for different sizes in all the popular brands, for example, Silk Cut, Silk Cut King Size, Silk Cut No1, Silk Cut No5, Silk Cut No3, as well as Silk Cut Extra Mild. It eventually needed the State to intervene and save the company from bankruptcy.

Girl in the Blue Coat

The Maxi had a major facelift in 1971. 3. Housing, fuel and power The invention of the Sparklets bulb popularised it as soda water. Player’s No6 and Embassy. However, they were joined by mild versions: Embassy Extra (or Xtra may refer to) Mild and Player (may refer to)’s No6 Extra Mild. After years in the naff cupboard, John and Norma Major owned one, it is now hip to own a teasmade. Look for bright orange fondue pots and forks with teak handles. The Escort was introduced late in 1967 as a replacement for the popular Ford Anglia. In 1971 there were only three manufacturers of teamade: Goblin (goblin is a monstrous creature from European folklore, first attested in stories from the Middle Ages), Ecko and Russell Hobbs. The Austin Maxi (may refer to) could have been a world beater. Some schools banned them from the playground. The game was invented by Israeli postmaster and telecommunications expert, Mordecai Meirowitz. That includes everything from bus tickets to buying cars and petrol. Those leading (typography, leading ( LED-ing) refers to the distance between adjacent lines of type; however, the exact definition has become confused) the way were the professional middle classes. A range of engines sizes (is the magnitude or dimensions of a thing) from 1100 to 1750cc, a rather stylish small estate (or The Estate may refer to) and a posh Vanden Plas version with real wood facia, leather (is a durable and flexible material created by tanning animal rawhide and skins) seats and picnic tables failed to impress buyers. This is an unreadable success of sales.

Just depending on the first iPhone’s groundbreaking operating system and simple design style, they have already got so many consumers. Although the appearance of iPhone (iPhone is a line of smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc) basically has no change, even other (usually refers to: Other (philosophy), a concept in psychology and philosophyOther or The Other may also refer to) mobile phones’ appearances are more artistic, there are still a large crowd of iPhone fans appealing to iPhone.

Even the L looked stylish, but the upmarket GXL offered acres of simulated wood trim, glorious velour seats (seat is a place to sit) and a chrome trimmed black vinyl roof.

Like the Cortina, Ford offered a huge range of engines and trim levels. About ten minutes (minute is a unit of time usually equal to ​1⁄60 (the first sexagesimal fraction) of an hour, or 60 seconds) before the alarm went off, the kettle boiled the water, which bubbled through a spout into the teapot (teapot is a vessel used for steeping tea leaves or a herbal mix in boiling or near-boiling water, and for serving the resulting infusion which is called tea).

Life expectancy is perhaps the most notable single change (or Changing may refer to).

In 1970 there was a rash of new models: the Morris Marina; a completely restyled Vauxhall Viva; and the all new Hillman (is a British automobile marque created by the Hillman Motor Car Company, founded in 1907) Avenger, remember those L shaped tail lights? *In 1970, nearly half (48 per cent (may refer to)) of all households in Great Britain (usually refers to the United Kingdom, a sovereign state comprising the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands) did not have regular use of a car. Car makers ditched the chrome grills, the wood and leather interiors of the 60s and embraced American coke bottle styling, plastic fascias and matt black grills.

Some British TV programs, however, had been produced in color even before the introduction of color television in 1967, for the purpose of sales to American, Canadian, and Filipino networks. In this form it enjoyed modest sales throughout most of the 70s. Dial Telephone

The Escort continued the Anglia theme of a stylish body (may refer to) combined with basic, but reliable, mechanicals. At the top of the Capri range was the 3000E, which offered outstanding performance with a top speed of 122mph and 0-60mph in eight seconds.

8. Everything else It was a completely new car.

Keg bitter was definitely the drink of the early seventies (70 () is the natural number following 69 and preceding 71). “Classics” such as Watneys Red Barrel (or Watney’s Red as they tended to call it then), Double Diamond, Courage Tavern and Worthington ‘E’ are well out of production. This is positive for the imitation suppliers like Topons to some extend.
It centainly brings fine economic efficiency, but consumers turn out to be sacrificial lamb, what they deserved is just (may refer to: Just (surname) “Just” (song), a song by Radiohead Just! (series), a series of short-story collections for children by Andy Griffiths Jordan University of Science and Technology, a) vanity and fanaticism.

Surprisingly BL failed to provide a hatchback version even (may refer to) though the Allegro shape suited it, and they had been making the hatchback Maxi since 1969. Look out for pre-1973 versions that do not have the ‘Game of the Year’ award on the box. By 1974, one in ten households had a freezer.

The really skilled could make the Klackers meet at the top and bottom of a circle; it required practice. As women (woman is a female human being) replaced mini skirts with midis and maxis, and men chucked out the Don Draper look in favour of flares and wide ties, cars changed just as significantly, on the outside at least. It was one of the first hatch back cars, and it was one of the first mass-market cars to have a five-speed gear box. Given the perilous state of our savings, you have (or having may refer to: the concept of ownership any concept of possession; see Possession (disambiguation) an English verb used: to denote linguistic possession in a broad sense as an auxiliary) to wonder where the extra £210 per week went (We only spent £460 of it remember). The percentage smoking cigarettes had fallen from the peak of 65% in 1948 and the risks (is the potential for uncontrolled loss of something of value) of smoking on health were beginning to slowly sink in. In spite of research by the late Professor Sir Richard Doll published in 1951, which linked smoking with lung cancer, cigarette smoking was so much a part of life that the habit died hard.

The first of the new wave was the Ford Escort, launched in late 1967. Presumably this means telephones, mobiles, broadband and the like.

    What about Bristol Tipped? I used to put the filters in them when I was a student working in the holidays at WD & HO Wills in Bedminster.

    Of all these, it’s the space hopper, or what some call hipity hop, that has the most changed my life, as I still go to work every morning on my space hopper.

    This review is from: Girl in the Blue Coat (Paperback)

    Intended for a YA audience, the content and subject matter make this book engaging for adults as well. The setting is The Netherlands during World War II. The protagonist is a young woman involved in the black market. A page turning story of young love, war, survival and devotion, this historic novel is intense and powerful. Rich in detail and depth, the spirit of hope underlies the atrocities portrayed throughout this composition. The ravages of war and the price of freedom are issues that are broached with sensitivity and discernment. Losses are agonizing and the challenges of survival are considerable, but hope remains. Excellent reading!

    Nice history information. These are useful for newer generations to know what was in the past. Interesting! This is my rotary telephone 706 with colour coded dial. 🙂 [https://www.flickr.com/photos/eastbtm/4768762740/in/set-72157610649326683] and the trimphone model 722 telephone.
