There was an old tin of Rowntrees Cocoa in our food cupboard. It sat there untouched, for years. The tin was a dull light chocolate brown, with a cream picture of a young maid in old fashioned dress carrying a mug of steaming hot cocoa on a tray. It was probably one of the few luxury items in the food cupboard. Perhaps none of us knew what to do with it! Alongside it was an old jar of Sharwoods’ mango chutney-there weren't too many curry nights at 6/2 Oxgangs Avenue so it too lasted for years!
'And finally, not everyone’s being doing topical. In fact, here’s the rather lovely 6 Oxgangs Avenue devoted to the history of the development of the area, this week highlighting how the block of flats came into being. Could have been prompted by Who do you think you are? Or just a timely reminder that not everything worth blogging about is in the here and now.'
