    The village I grew up in still has a red phone box, my high school had chain toilets in some of its buildings and our soda stream is still in existence (although not in use) and still adorned with a decade's worth of fruit stickers after I got banned from putting them on the fridge.
    Having said that, there are a few things I haven't seen in yonks:
    - the original lineup of books by Jean Ure and Jaqueline Wilson, which were always around when I was young but I think they got superseded by newer and trendier ones by both authors.
    - Corona fizzy drinks, with deposits on the glass bottles (yes, I am just about old enough to remember these - and young enough that the returned deposit seemed like a lot of money!)
    - Panini stickers and albums, although this might be because I wouldn't know where to look these days.
    - The BBC test card, on the TV as opposed to youtube
    - Public information films of the sort discussed in the TV forum here - maybe kids today are more easily traumatised than we were then?? (Apaches, btw, was *nothing* to some of the posters the older kids at my primary school came up with themselves when set a competition to design an ad campaign against messing around on farms - loads of red paint!) I always rather liked them for some reason, obviously turning into a goth already...

    I always thought it was only white poodles who done the white poo . Noticed you all call fizzy juice 'pop' ?? Am I the only kid who called it 'ginger' then?

    If it was flavoured carbonated water ( i.e. Seven Up, Cola, Cream Soda etc)- it was Pop - the only one we'd call ginger would be Ginger Beer / Ale

    I think Pop was more of a northern expression. Growing up in South London, the only time I heard these drinks called Pop was in comics, mostly from IPC and DC Thomson. Most of whose writers were northerners. We just called Cola 'cola' and 7Up '7Up'.
