On 26th Dec 2012 11:27am, scrutiny said: Spent a few hours in there myself, Dutchman, and a few pennies. Also the chippy when I went to the Cov Boys Club over the road. Bit posher now, it was only a wooden shack when I went.
Speaking of which... Coventry Boys' Club

Brilliant Dutchman, That is a real blast from the past. Both Pendleton and Sherlock are exactly as I remember them. Cheers

As a kid we had twelve blocks of wood in a tray, each block was a two-inch cube, each face of the cube was a picture, you turned the blocks until you had all twelve as one picture, you turned them each until you had a different picture, easy for small kids to learn. We also had a draughts board cut into various pieces to assemble back to a draughts board.

First I've seen of this topic. Tippet, someone knocked the tippet and we all ran and hid. The tacks in the bobbin, we twisted wool round the tacks and they went down the bobbin hole, we made lengths of them sewed them together like a giant sausage and used them to stop the draughts at the bottom of the door. Cut old clothes into four inch strips, tacked them through sacking making a small carpet, there was a special tool for this (forget the name). Can-can or cannit, place a tin on the floor, boot as far as possible just to annoy neighbours.

MR. I meant what the tool was called, and you're being a bit nice, we called it Froggy Knitting
