A collection of tales of growing up in a working class suburb of South Australia in the 1950's.
My Dad was the butcher, next door was the grocer. Milk and bread were delivered by horse-drawn vehicles, and what is now a busy highway was once an ordinary street with little traffic.
Welcome to a whole other world - so simple, so full of hope after the years of War and want. We thought it would never end.
How blessed to have lived in those best of times.

Perfection. I was a 60's child and I can relate to those same feelings of innocence, togetherness, family and how people's perspective and values were - well, 'healthier', let's say. I miss those days.
