Any Criv-ites ever have this tin? It contained biscuits by McVITIE & PRICE, and was available circa 1960 onwards. (I've managed to track one down and hope to be buying it soon. Update: Bought it.)
Captain's Log, Stardate Saturday 16th: I received my tin today and the first thing I did was place it in a wall cupboard which now occupies the upper space of where the larder once was. I thought it fitting to put it in pretty much the same spot I'd last seen the original, as it suggested to my mind a continuity and resumption of how things were in the 1970s. It must be around 40 years since the first tin 'disappeared', yet seeing its replacement banished the passage of time in an instant and immediately returned me to back then. Amazing, eh? I only kept it in the cupboard for a short time to establish that link with the past, and as I type, it sits on the floor so that I can gaze upon it and continue the illusion that I'm 40 years younger than I am. Sad? Maybe. Fulfilling? Definitely.
