I've never really thought about it but this board is really unique. We have regulars such as Lilian,Elizabeth,Don,Tom D that witnessed the end of the 1930s into the 1940s,then a lot more of us (me included) remember the later 40s into the 50s. Not many message boards can boast that.
This morning I was talking to my grandchildren and foxes were mentioned so I told them when I was a little lad I can remember old ladies wearing a stole around their necks made from a fox with its head and tail still attached. So to prove I wasn't exagerrating I Googled it and found this photo.
Imagine what the Animal Rights people would say today ? and rightly so.
