Childhood Spent In Poverty - February 9th, 1964

It's not so much about what happened on that date, but more about what happened in the aftermath.

Every kid wanted to be John, Paul, George or Ringo.

Thus, the imitation game began.

Now, up in Sandy Hill, my friends had imitation Beatles suits, Beatles wigs, plastic guitar repleccas, and small drums sets bought at Woolworths, Metropolitan or Freeman's department stores. The kids were totally enjoying themselves at singing and making all the Beatles moves.

Now what did the poor crazy kids from Lowertown do?

We would put on our first communion suit (navy blue blazer, grey pants), we all had them but were outgrowing them by the time the Beatles came along. We would then use mop heads for wigs and brooms for guitars. We we're Rock And Roll.

In hindsight, I guess that visually we looked like a grunge version of the Beatles.

Heck, we were doing it just as well as the kids in Sandy Hill if not better.

Sweet story, it reminded me of something. My friend wanted a Davy Crockett hat, they were very 'in' at the time, but expensive, so his Mum made him one out of an old coat - of course it was too embarrassing to wear in public. He didn't look like "The King of the wild frontier" more like a kid with a cushion on his head.
