Comment by Fred Cunliffe on 3rd June 2013 at 10:19
Is it seaworthy?


Comment by Bob on 3rd June 2013 at 10:30
Mick, thanks for the info. I asked because I will be visiting Dubai for hols shortly. Don't think I will take my bike. I know it is completely off the subject but can anyone suggest what to see etc.


Comment by Mac on 3rd June 2013 at 10:31
I know a big lad wot left who wore similar sized footwear.


Comment by Bradshaws Girl on 3rd June 2013 at 10:39
I was born and brought up in Kitt Green and i remember my grandparents and lots of the older residents wore clogs ... don't think i ever did.


Comment by Mick on 3rd June 2013 at 12:37
Bob Ive been to Dubai a few times, but if you go now you will be going at the hottest time of the year.

What to see and do, I would go on a desert safari that ends with barbeque and belly dancing.

I went to the top of the Burj Al Arab hotel but they did charge you to go inside the hotel but once you got in you was given a voucher for the amazing buffet lunch.

So really the charge was just to keep out the rif raf.

Another places is walk along the creek at night and see all the working Arab Dhows.

Now they have an even taller hotel that will have a viewing deck.

Best keep the old woman and her kids away from this clog....!!

Interesting photo, Mick.


Comment by Bob on 3rd June 2013 at 16:06
Thanks again Mick, for shortly read October. Back to clogs. When I was small I badly wanted clogs with "irons" to make sparks on the pavement. Mum would not buy me any, so when the boy next door wore "best" shoes on Sunday I borrowed his clogs and sparked to my hearts content.

Hi Bradshaw's Girl,
I lived at Kitt Green as well, until the age of 10.
I never saw anyone with clogs that I can remember but I do remember being a very small toddler and having a lovely red pair that fastened with a button at the side.


Comment by Mick on 3rd June 2013 at 18:56
Theres a cracking video here http://youtu.be/Hc4Bv92aVM0 of me wearing my new brown clogs


Comment by Bradshaws Girl on 3rd June 2013 at 19:13
Hi tricia
When were you born? I was born in 1950. We lived on City Road.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 3rd June 2013 at 19:31
Where's the other one?


Comment by tricia on 3rd June 2013 at 19:36
I lived in Prescott Lane.
Was trying to leave my email and did not know how!


Comment by Garry on 3rd June 2013 at 21:46
It should read , Bradshaws Gran at that age..lol.


Comment by Ellen on 3rd June 2013 at 22:25
Tricia,you,as a toddler realized my biggest childhood dream; a pair of red clogs! I never did get them, but I vividly remember a clog injury I got because I played football in open-toed sandals against boys wearing clogs!


Comment by Skeets on 3rd June 2013 at 23:23
Hi Tricia and Bradshaws girl. I was born in Prescott Lane and moved to Dean Crescent in 1952.
Been in Sydney since 1971. Visit often and love walking memory lanes.


Comment by tricia on 3rd June 2013 at 23:25
My wish was for a red jumper but my mother would never let me wear red as I had red hair and fair skin.
When I was about 4 my Aunt Mary turned up one day with a beautiful red one for me. I can remember it to this day. It had a windmill on it and a little Dutch boy and girl .. and of course they were both wearing clogs!


Comment by Ellen on 4th June 2013 at 01:19
Tricia, Was your jumper hand-knitted for you? Did it have a border of Tulips too? It sounds like one my mother knitted for me, only mine was pale blue!


Comment by steve on 4th June 2013 at 21:44
When I was a child living in Platt Bridge we all wore clogs (except Sundays) Clogs were very adaptable, good for sparking, skating on the local ponds and when it snowed it was great fun walking about with pads of snow on the soles of your clogs. Happy Days!
