    Izal, I didn't know that stuff had a name. We used to just call it tracing paper bog-roll. I remember getting caught short and my parents were out doing the shopping, they would have brought in something nice like Andrex. The only option was that tracing paper nastiness. I used a newspaper instead, it really was the better option.

    I think we always had Izal in the toilets at school. At home, softer stuff, but not Andrex as it was considered too expensive around here.

    What a pain it was trying to get to the bank before it closed in the days before cashpoints.

    I remember my parents having to go to the only one in town before shopping somewhere that didn't take cards.

    Our local shoe shop only took cheques & cash.

    I had to walk about a mile in each direction to get paraffin for our heater 'cause the central heating couldn't cope!

    I agree about banks. The ones in our town used to close around 4.30pm and were shut on saturdays, so it wasn't easy to actually get money out before cash machines. It is one of the reasons I started a building society account as they did open saturday mornings.
