We all miss our care free childhood days, so we’ve put together 10 images that will take you back…..
1. School Recorder Book
Everyone was forced to play the recorder at some point in their school lives weren’t they?
The recorder is a woodwind musical instrument in the group known as internal duct flutes—flutes with a whistle mouthpiece. A recorder can be distinguished from other duct flutes by the presence of a thumb-hole for the upper hand and seven finger-holes: three for the upper hand and four for the lower. It is the most prominent duct flute in the western classical tradition.
2. Raleigh Chopper
The must have bike of our childhood! great for giving backies, even though the band on the seat told you it was illegal!
The Raleigh Chopper is a children’s bicycle, a wheelie bike, manufactured and marketed in the 1970s by the Raleigh Bicycle Company of Nottingham, England. Its unique design became a cultural icon and is fondly remembered by many who grew up in that period. The design was influenced by dragsters, “chopped” motorcycles, beach buggys, and even chariots, as can be seen on the centre page of the 1969 Raleigh US catalog
The Raleigh Chopper’s design has been a constant debate, with claims by both Tom Karen of Ogle Design and Alan Oakley of Raleigh. The Chopper was designed in response to the Schwinn Sting-Ray, and an earlier attempt, called the Rodeo, which was not commercially successful. The popularity of the Chopper also led to a range of smaller bikes following a similar design theme. These included the Raleigh Chipper, Tomahawk, Budgie and Chippy models, aimed at younger riders
