A Bit of Schoolboy Nostalgia

by in Random

If you went to school in Ireland you probably had one of these "maths set" cases at some point.

I'd forgotten about them until I spotted this one for sale in a supermarket in Midleton.

Of course if it isn't scratched and punched full of holes it probably isn't the "genuine article" :)

I'm not sure when I had the last one of these, but it was probably back in 1990 or 1991 - maybe even before then

    Fast forward to 2013 and our eldest got his first set this year. The letter from the school instructed us to remove the compass before sending it with him to school. No sharp implements allowed for the first year :)
