An odd title for a thread I know, but .....
I was pondering my recently arrived (enormous) gas and electric bills today and on the TV comes an advert - British Gas, the one where the tag line is something along the line of 'your world is turned upside down if your boiler breaks down ... etc', with the image of someone in the shower and no water.
This got me thinking. What if we couldn't shower twice a day - which of course led to, well we didn't when I was a lad in the 60's. It was bath night on Sunday and a good wash down for the rest of the week. Even further back to the early 60's it was bath night in the tin bath in front of the fire!! This disappeared when our dad built an extension to out 2-up 2-down, but still bath night remained.
This situation wasn't just us, it was everyone I knew and I don't remember me or my mates smelling. It could have been that we all smelled as bad as each other so didn't notice it.
So. Did we smell in the 60's?
