    Do You remember rabbits

    Early 1970's I worked for one of the Boldocks, a well known Sheffield family in the wet fish & poultry business, so obviously we sold rabbits. You would think that a rabbit was just a rabbit, which it is, but we sold two sorts of rabbits, the fresh unskinned that was seen hanging in or outside the shop, you would ask for it to be cleaned and portioned, part of could be bought or the whole animal. The other rabbit was a bit less known to customers and the public, they came frozen and boxed from China, they came skinned and cleaned with an intact body, except for one thing, the frozen imports came with no head. The imports were often the clean rabbit portions seen for sale on the sellers slab, so no head, no fresh rabbit. No idea if this still applies today.

    Do You remember rabbits

    When I was very young (late 1950's - early 60's) my father had an allotment in the Farm grounds off Granville Road, there were lots of rabbits living in the railway embankment and the fields within the grounds. Dad used to set wire snares and catch them, rabbit stew was a regular meal in our house.

    I came across this image on facebook, apparently this bridge on Hyde park flats is leading into Derwent Row (seen behind the adult in the background).
