Here's a look at the not too far distant past - my son, James, in his wicker chair 'sometime' in the 1970s in Burnaby, British Columbia. Just look at that big old TV behind him.
I still have that chair - it's not for sitting anymore as it's a bit fragile. Sometimes it holds a plant now and sometimes books!
James also played on the same small table that I used when I was little. My dad put a new top on that when James was born and it was sturdy enough then to last through two more children. You can see a photograph of me in my own little chair at my own little table on my BookCrossing shelf. (Just scroll down on the page a bit.)
