Like its predecessor When I Were a Lad, this collection mines the rich vein of nostalgia created by archive photos—this time fewer children in peril, more children at school Ah, the past. A time when children could roll in the street, when boys were allowed to play cowboys and Indians, and when school dinners were made from some of the hardest substances known to man. This collection straps on its rose-tinted spectacles once more and ventures back into the simpler childhoods of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, a time when schoolteachers were feared and when children indulged in such exotic pastimes of the day as stamp collecting and playing not with Xboxes, but tangerine boxes.
