Yes Hort, I remember them very well, I used to watch them every week with my Mum & Dad on "Sunday Night at the London Palladium". :thumbup:

They have a similar group of Women here in NY called "The Rockettes" who were originally inspired by "The Tiller Girls".

 Founded in 1925 in St. Louis, they have performed at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, New York City, since 1932.

I was just relating your pedantic attittude.You are the one with this attitude.I was myself brought up on those print sets.Thats how i could identify the moans etc when you lose those piddling letter squares etc.Unfortunately the pedantic way you act as maybe hit home.No insult just a remark.Like any one who has similar attitudes.

Mine was more of an interpersonal comment,like someone who has really set ideas.   So are you saying you are happy to be insulted elsewhere?

Jumble (or rummage) sales. Usually held in church halls in aid of scouts etc.

I have clear memories of being taken to one in St Mary's church in Keswick Road in the 1940s. Rows of trestle tables covered in old clothes, curtains etc with scores of women thumbing through the stuff

You might get this on a car boot or on any old any boot.

You do not see this these days.

Anyone still got any?
