The theme for this week’s pictorial trip down memory lane is local youth organisations and these images go back to the 1950s.
If you or any of your friends, family or neighbours were in the Boys’ Brigade, Girls’ Brigade, Cubs, Scouts, or any of the cadet groups, then you might well recognise them.
Grab yourself a cuppa and enjoy having another browse back through the ages courtesy of The Dundonian, which appears in the Evening Telegraph every Wednesday.
Some of these photographs have not been seen for years.
Do they awaken any memories for you?
Working for the shilling
In the old days it was known as Bob-a-Job Week where Cubs and Scouts would knock on people’s doors and offer to get their hands dirty in return for a shilling.
One of the usual tasks was car cleaning, although few Scouts would have had the opportunity to clean such a wonderful vehicle as the one seen in this image from 1951.
When you had completed your task, you provided your temporary employer with a yellow sticker with blue print and a big tick that they would put in your window.
The end of the shilling meant a change to the less than euphonious Scout Job Week!
