Pictures of a Bygone Age

by duncanr

these pictures of post war Salford and Manchester –

could just as easily have been pictures of my own upbringing in post war Edinburgh – a time when parents weren’t so paranoid about their kids’ safety and actively encouraged them to play outside without adult supervision . . .

when you’ve finished your breakfast, Dunc, you can go play outside

but Ma, it’s raining

I don’t care. I’m not having you hanging around the house all day, getting under my feet, I’ve got things to do, so piss off and don’t come back till tea-time!

My Daughter is Precious

by duncanr

father and daughter1daughters are often less valued than sons in some cultures

one father and daughter who hope to change that are Rajesh Ramakrishnan and his 14 yr old daughter, Kaavya

In April this year, they launched a project called ‘My Daughter is Precious

keen photographers, themselves, they noticed that many folk in the poorest sections of society did not own a camera so in addition to raising money for young girls in India and Bangladesh – whose parents can’t afford it – to get an education, they take . . .

Real Men Wear Pink

If it makes his wife Linda laugh and helps her through her chemotherapy, he’s happy to do it and if it helps, at the same time, to raise money to support other women with breast cancer who don’t have health insurance to cover the cost of treatment that’s an added bonus

Red in Bed a No-No

by duncanr

What colour of female genitals do men prefer?

A young Swedish girl got drunk at a party and passed out. While she was asleep, two lads took photographs of her naked breasts. Some time later, the police found the pics on the PC of one of the lads and were able to trace the girl, who had been unaware of the photographs. Feeling ‘violated’, upon finding out they had partially stripped and photographed her while she was unconscious she decided to have them men charged with sexual molestation. A judge, however, threw out the case on the grounds that no crime had been committed because the woman was unaware at the time that she was being sexually molested.

Hhmm, following that logic then, a man who . . .
