I used to collect the cards from Brooke Bond teaand stick them in albums and the stamps on the front of the packet. 60 stamps on a card and you got 5 shillings for it!
I am not that old (ok, 61) I lived when I was little in a house with no electric. Bath was a tin bath in front of the range in the living room. Toilet was inside but the washhouse was outside with a big boiler and an iron mangle, glass washboard. Lighting was by Tilly lamp (paraffin).
