Someone posted this old photo on FB of a petrol station back in the late 60s / early 70s.  I've now got it as my desktop pic on the PC.

An interesting picture of an earlier age.

 

But why when I click on it am I directed to a ‘site advertising ‘Sexy Asian women in Doncaster’, ‘Sexy Asian women in Doncaster looking for men over 35’ and most alarming is a tip to ‘Stop disappointing in bed’...involving a hard boiled egg! I have a screen grab to prove this but think it best not to publish it.

 

PS I am not in Doncaster or have a hard boiled egg to hand.

I must assume that they haven't actually seen my body lately!!  :lol:

You could always eat the hard boiled egg in bed. Perhaps that’s the tip?

I always find eating unpeeled eggs most unpleasant, Tim...

 

Passing the shell next day is none too joyous either, if I'm honest!  :blink:

No eating in bed; no eating in cars. I hope you make these rues clear to the Russian ladies whose ads you admire so much!

Looks like my ad blocker is constraining my experience of Mx5life. No signs of any women peeling hard boiled eggs.

I click on it and get " sexy Russian women, 6'3d" Im still trying to work out if thats a bargain or not?! Lol

Excellent photo Dave. That looks exactly like the one in a little town near me that my Dad used to go to in his mk1 escort back in the early 70's. I was only about 5 but can remember it like it was yesterday! 4 star was i think 37p a gallon. Brilliant times! Once when he went in, a chap at the pump in front said "wait for this pump, it'll be worth it" My dad did as asked and then found out why!!! The pump was pumping fuel out as normal, but the wee numbers were going round really slow so not keeping up with the amount of fuel it was actually putting out!! He got a full tank for 54p!!!! Everyone was using that pump! Lol took two days for the owner of the petrol station to twig what was happening haha! Garage is still there to this day, but stopped selling fuel way back in the mid to late 80's. Was selling used cars until two years ago (bought my 2008 mini from there) but is now selling/fixing/servicing brand new camper vans.

Thanks for the photo mate, brings back so many nice memories.

:giggle: :giggle: :giggle:    Ah! you've discovered the subliminal advertsing of Postimage Jono. When a link is copied and pasted from Postimage it also copies some lines of advertising linkage as well which doesn't show up until the photo is posted here on Life. I discovered this a while back so now after I've posted anything I go back in via edit - where the lines of text can be seeen - and remove additional links. Must have forgotten to do it on that one, mind you the photo was nicked from FB so it could have anything attached to it   :)    If you try it again the hard boiled egg and the russian lady might well have have gone as I've now removed the ad text

 

Is that 6'3d a gallon for four star I see on the nearest pump?

 

Yes it is Steve - or about 31p. I reckon this is around 1970 and was wondering which car I had then, and realised I was still mucking about with motorbikes and nicking Dad's A40 for impressing "me birds" with at the time. It wasn't 'til '71 when I turned 21 and finished my apprenticeship that he bought himself a HB Viva - which was a horrible thing to drive - and gave me the A40 which I only had for about 6 months before swapping it for a Mini. In hindsight I should have kept the A40 :)
