John Bull CHILDS PRINTING SET. Fiddly little pieces of rubber that you placed into a holder using tweezers. The frustration when you realized that all the words were backwards & you had to start again!
The "Telephone Table" - yes, every home had one of these in the hall, where you would sit for the couple of seconds that you were allowed to use the phone, in the freezing cold in the hallway. It had a convenient section underneath to store your phone directory.
