This Used To Be My Playground

Like many kids, I spend quite a far bit of my childhood at the playground.

A simple rubber or tyre swing seat with steel chains over a sand puddle was more than enough for any kid in the 70s.

We would spend hours competing to swing the highest, build sand castles or play tic-tac-toe on the sand.

Over the years, playground has become more sophisticated and safe but this is no longer my playground.

The old welcoming the new...
