You Never See Women Scrubbing Their Front Doorstep Any More...So..

...what happened? Some even washed the pavement outside their house!

Nor, do you see women on their knees polishing the doorstep with Cardinal Red Polish. We still have doorsteps, so what happened? When and why did they stop?

Maybe, you can think of some more You Never See....

My Nan did that Art. That made me sad thinking about a story, about the London Blitz, and the fact that she hid a tin of memorabilia under that step.
It was the only thing left!!!!

Anyway, I have not seen the scouts doing a bob a job.

Nor do you see anyone black leading a kitchen range or cleaning out the grate anymore.

Re: You Never See Women Scrubbing Their Front Doorstep Any More...So..

Good morning Arty....hey good thought...

I think back when that was being done, most of the women stayed home. Now everyone works outside the home. I used to wash mine and my driveway....

You never see anyone with a rake anymore raking up the leaves into piles for the kids to jump into....

Be interesting to see what members come up with, that we used to do, that isn't seen anymore....

I remember when men wore a sports coat with tie as general wear. You never see that now except on the elderly.

Very old fashioned cast iron, coal fuelled kitchen ranges like these:

Because they were cast iron, they needed to black leaded to stop them going rusty.

I have never scrubbed a doorstep in my life, I have never seen the need to do so. If it was dirty a bucket of soapy water would suffice.
