Memories of forgotten days

Memories Forgotten Days 

The year of 1950 was the year a summer lasted from 
Mars to October and I was twelve years old and wore 
long trousers. It was a time of equality children of 
the middle classes and us poor went to the same school, 
it was only when we parted at the school gate we 
went our separate way. Our street was what we can call 
a place where poverty lingered but things where getting 
better and we  had food to eat as there were fishes in 
the sea and potatoes in the fields. Near us in a big white 
house lived a man who mother said was very rich I often 
saw him getting out of a black car helped by a uniformed 
chauffeur. The rich man wore a heavy coat all year round 
but his riches meant nothing to me, I was more impressed 
by the chauffeur who got to drive such a splendid car.
