Just having a little giggle i thought i would share some of my Antiques or rather where they cam from and when.
Now at the age of 57 this was this little Volt Meter was given to me in an unusual way, at 14 yrs of age i was constantly
looking for weekend & after school hours work, although i helped out in the Family Garage in school holidays, my Father
never would work weekends, so my pocket money been limited to 10p a week i was constantly looking for more ways to
earn a buck, cleaning cars, paper round and milk round, i also ventured into a bit of Gardening (Grass Cutting).
One day i knocked on a old Ladies door and proposed i cut her grass, after the job was complete, i was initially gutted
when she came to the Door and said she had no money to pay me, but handed me the little box as shown with the sentence
"this was my husbands and i want you to have it".
having worked in the Garage and seeing what was inside the box i expressed my gratitude and ran home with it, further discussions
with my old man revealed exactly what it was, i treasured it for the rest of time but lost it in a house move in @1993.
In August this year my sister in law passed away, it was left to my Son and Ex to clean out my S.I.L house and to my great delight my Son
passed it back to me, worth very little in monitory terms but invaluable in historical terms to me.
And this my first phone log, probably got it free in a lucky bag, but at 22 yrs old i started my first Garage and this was my life line
to both customers and Suppliers, ...... a paper iphone i suppose.
Have you got any antiques you cherish, no matter how small the value.
