my nephew and my uncle (headless).

loving the wallpaper
Beano

Doog Doog....great set mate     looking at old photographs, It's amusing to see how styles and  fashion change over the years. The wallpaper is typical of the 1970s and considered very modern at that time. The spiky living room wall clock was a must have item. Thanks for sharing mate.
