A conversation that I had with Louis yesterday was interesting. I showed him a picture of a roll of developed camera film. 'Do you know what this is?' I asked. 'Duh! Do you think I'm stupid?' he replied. 'It's a roll of film that you used to put in cameras.' I said that I was only asking because I was curious and not trying to undermine him. Then I asked. 'Have you seen some of it then?'. 'Only in a picture, not in real life.' It made me realise just how different his childhood world looks to my own growing up in the 1970s.
I'll try him with this one next. It's very like my first ever 'music system'. I used to sit really close to my radio and record the tunes that I liked from the Top 40 on crackly bargain cassettes.
