Horrible things that we used in the past

Not much else going on here so I will contribute to the trivia. What in hindsight were awful things that a lot of people used in the past. A few examples to get started, woodchip wallpaper, fablon, stone cladding, artex, white wall car tyres.

Still is apparently "Belladonna plasters".

Those custom-shaped 'belladonna plasters' must be back in vogue 'cos quite-a-lot of the modern-day top athlete's 'n' tennis stars seem to have 'em stuck on to most regions of their anatomies ... I'm surprised that they [the athlete's 'n' tennis stars ] haven't cashed-in on the potential sponsorship windfalls that those patches might generate. [Watch this Patch]

Please do not be knocking wood-chip paper. I have quite a lot of it in my house, it covers a multitude of sins and, when well applied and decorated can look as good as anything else. It has the advantage of hiding scratch marks (from the cats) and minor damage (from the humans). Plus, if a bit is missed when decorating, it doesn't show!

So long live wood-chip

The cassette loader for the spectrum

hours of screeching to find it fails just before the end of loading.
