Opening the vault and taking a look at photos from the 90s
A grandfather offers his grandson his first drink. (just a pose for the camera.) I laugh at this photo now, and I believe it sums up the 90s nicely, it’s unlikely in todays serious world you could get away with an image like that, you’d be cancelled.
In the early days of my life, our family didn’t own a car, so getting me to pre-school meant a ride with Newcastle Taxis.
The pre-school was a specialty school for the visually impaired and deaf, which formally went under the name of ‘Royal Institute for blind and deaf,’ but have recently undergone a rebrand and operate under the name of ‘Nextsense,’
My grandfather would take me for a trip up to the shops at Charlestown, and was both amazed that all the cabbies knew me by name as a little boy.
I have forwarded this picture to 13Cabs via an email enquiry and tagged them in this tweet, but have not heard back from them yet.
