Picturesque, traditional, rural African villages instead of shanty towns and squatter camps.

Colonialism – when Angola, Mozambique, Congo, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Somalia and Sudan were not known for civil war, land mines, corruption, election rigging, dictators, genocide, rape, starvation and anarchy.

P&O mailships – when the foghorn blew, streamers were thrown from the quay by friends wishing passengers a 'bon voyage'.  Steamboat tugs.

Overnight SAR steam train trips – eating dinner in the teak dining car at tables decked with starched linen table cloths and napkins, porcelain china, chrystal, and silver.

Waiters dressed in a dinner jacket, bow tie, and white gloves, who called people “Sir” and “Madam”.

Cream teas at John Orrs, Greatermans, and Ansteys department stores, and uniformed lift operators (bellhops) who recited a long list of what was sold on each floor.

Massive family Guy Fawkes celebrations – when 200 'Tom Thumbs' cost 2½d.

Good English spoken on London streets, especially before the EU.

Public Transport before the minibus taxi.

Street corners and traffic lights without beggars and street vendors. Driving with the windows down and the doors unlocked.

B.T. – Before Terrorism, when the AK47 was unknown.

Unprecocious children with nice manners.

Safe drinking water, and swimming in dams and rivers unpolluted by sewage.

Turboprop aircraft like the 'Viscount' and 'Constellation'.

Formula One before Bernie. Murray Walker, Jim Clarke, Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost, Nigel Mansell...

Buying Lancia spares at T.A.K. Motors in Anderson street Jo'burg.

The Lancia Martini rally and race teams. Walter Rohrl, Markku Alen, Miki Biasion, Henri Toivonen, Cesare Fiorio...
