Let­ter of the week Sweet sounds

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

RE­CENTLY, I asked some friends which sounds from their child­hood they most miss to­day. ‘The sound of chick­ens in the yard,’ said one. ‘The sound of a carv­ing knife be­ing sharp­ened on a stone doorstep prior to Sun­day lunch,’ an­swered an­other. A third friend said a car­pet be­ing beaten. My own an­swer is the sound of horses’ hooves herald­ing the ap­proach of the milk­man or the green­gro­cer. Which child­hood sounds do the readers of COUN­TRY LIFE miss, I won­der? J. M. Pettigrew, Hert­ford­shire
