Out on the River Clyde, in May 1962, is little Anthony Smith playing out on a home made raft. His father took the picture, so was nearby in case anything happened, but it didn’t just get me thinking of innocent childhood youth spending warm summers making their own entertainment.
In these days of health and safety and changed times, I wonder now how many kids would be allowed out on the Clyde, even with their parents nearby!? Perhaps we’ve all taken health and safety too far these days.
