…and not just because I had to get the Silverlink to Highbury this evening. In fact, not even. It was just that I was walking up to Kew Gardens station when I noticed that the old photo developer place has rebranded itself as a photo printing place and ’50’s American Style Internet Cafe’. Ah yes, those old American internet cafes from the fifties, with their chrome detailing and fins … or was that the cars? No, I’m thinking of those old American internet cafes from the fifties with their tight sweaters and their bobby socks … or was that the girls?
In fact, tell me oh those of you who can remember it. What was the internet like in the fifties?
