childhood memories

I have two memories that go with this photo.

The first is playing football and rounders with the other children in the picture. This was our playground when I was a child. The picture was taken in 1968, I would have been 8 years old.

The second memory was of the telephone box at the bottom of the hill. Every Friday my mother sent me with my 2p to phone my grandmother to check she was okay. Something I hated doing.
