What would you bring back?
Of all the charming customs and objects now consigned to history, what would you reinstate?

Whatever happened to bed curtains and cuckoo clocks? So many items that were once the staple of a home have been consigned to history and forgotten. And yet lots were delightful and possibly more useful than their modern alternatives.
Here are a few things we would reinstate…
Slide projectors. An evening out in 1970s was being invited to a party to see someone’s holiday slides. I liked the mechanical clunk that they made going round, but they weren’t very practical - the bulb was always blowing.
Drawing rooms. So there’s somewhere for the ladies to retire to.
