I always remember being hungry when I was wee.  I do remember our rag and bone man too Sandy, my mum gave them a load of old clothes etc once and she said I could get 3p for them from the wife sitting in the cart.  I remember feeling embarrassed about the 3p because they looked like they had less money than we did and I couldn't look the lady in the eye when I said thank you.
