He reminds me of Ron Mael, he is the plank spanker <keyboards> from Sparks, the wan that looks a cross between Hilter and Charlie Chaplin.

As much as I love these photies I hate them at the same time, its horrible to think that people lived in such dire straights

Most of us are guilty of looking back with rose-tinted glasses....... but at the same time, I only remember the happy times in our tenement. Three generations sharing a room and kitchen, one cold water tap and a toilet on the landing shared with two other families.

While I am sure it was hard at times for our parents, my sisters and I always had a wee holiday each year (usually in Arran) and we were warmly dressed and as well fed as possible in the circumstances. We also had many happy Christmas days too and lots of interaction with wider family, aunties, grannies, cousins, etc.

The only sorrow I have is that our mother passed away in 1953, aged 42, leaving our Dad and 3 daughters. I am sure she would have loved the new 2-bedroom flat we got about 2 years later in Cadder.

Life was hard then in comparison to today's standards but are people any happier now?

I've got agree SKL, it's all relative isn't it? Youngsters these days have probably a much harder time than we had in the 40's/50's/60's simply because live was far more basic back then - not to mention much more fun.
