All our yesterdays 6 of 6

Possibly a  set of early National health false teeth. Soaked in a glass overnight and no doubt made sparkling clean with a tablet of Steradent! I think relatively few people of my age had their own teeth in the 1940's and 50's

Good thing the teeth were removable...I expect one could easily choke in one's sleep if the steradent tabet slipped down the wind-pipe...
Bill Phillips: True Ray.
Don't see that a lot these days.

My mother (A Nurse) tells a funny story about "falsies" as she calls them. She worked "Elderly Services" for years and one of her patients passed in the night. One of the things they do, for the family is to replace teeth etc, so the departed look a little more presentable. Well this night she had all sorts of trouble with the teeth. The Sister came in and pointed out that she was putting Mr Smiths teeth in a dead Mr Jones. Doh.. wrong table....

The exhuberance of youth . . . .

Bill Phillips: Imagine having to retrieve themtongue
Ah.. lead plumbing. Those were the days. I've got some Steradent tablets; I use them for debugging my coffee flask after a day's walking.
Bill Phillips: Not much would survive a steradent tablet Alan
I remember this well, brilliant as all their work was.
Bill Phillips: They were wonderful.

My kids were entirely taken aback when they saw their grandfather's teeth in a glass.
Bill Phillips: LOL! I can well imagine

Bill Phillips: I haven't had one for ages! Just as well by the look of it!
Ha!..a great shot Chris..A little different today. I'm pleased with mine though.
Bill Phillips: LOL! I'll even forgive you calling me Chrissmile
When you have toothache you wish you could do this with your teeth.
Bill Phillips: True Linda!
Another very familiar scene. In fact we used to have glasses exactly like that (but without the teeth!).
Bill Phillips: Easier to drink out of thensmile
Surely this is a sight that won't return.

Bill Phillips: I hope it won't
