    Ah kids in the day playing with yoyos. Now they are more likely to be playing with each other's genitals.

    Great footage though. Felt very Australian.

    The thing Im most surprised by is how back then fashion, particularly in Aust didnt change as quickly as it does now. Found out that the video was shot around 1981- 1983.

    Some parts of the US are 10-15 yrs ahead/behind other parts when it comes to fashion trends, and interior decoration. I live in LA and there are houses in the valley that look like you time travelled into the 70s, and not hip ironic 70s style, it's like the actual 70s.

    Wow cool share. I've seen some home videos of my parents from 1979 and on. Apparently they have some old school films too but there isn't anything to watch it on.

    !981 to 1983, school was over for me then, and I was dealing with the issues of the Gay Plague Era; but that was an education in its self.

    I feel a little envious watching this; as back in the 1960s shirt and tie were compulsory uniform attire here in the UK, and still is to this day, some 45 years on.

    And we had male teachers who struck terror into the heart of every pupil, boys in particular, as corporal punishment with a cane struck across the palm of the hand was the norm.

    A great video.

    Sorry to say this but that Ja'mie King is an arrogant bitch. How dare she says with such condescending manner that commoners are beneath her, less likely to win a place at University and more prone to crime and domestic abuse.

    Actually, here in the UK much of all this is true. But instead of turning up her snooty nose, maybe she can contribute a part of her wealth to good causes aimed to help those less fortunate.

    ontario canada in the 80's was about 5-6 years ahead of the OP, that looked like the mid seventies. by the 80s you got mousse, spiked hair, tight pants, longer shorts, more buckles, gloves, neon, intentional holes, vuarnet, and leftover punk accessories.

    It's called walking the fashion catwalk to raise funds from other people donating.

    In the above post I said that she should donate from her own wealth, and as I should add, without such body displays.
