I can remember a time when you could be pretty certain about a person’s age by the way they looked. Well, in many cases, you can still have a good idea of where to place a person in the age continuum if you look closely but back then you all you really had to do was look at what they were wearing. Mums and dads dressed in a certain way and as they aged the look changed until they graduated into being grandmas and grandads. It was the whole look, shoes, clothes, hair that placed them in a certain age bracket. And once you were in an age bracket you were expected to act a certain way.
This is how it was in the recent past but had it always been that way? How was aging looked at further back, many generations ago? Looks like I have another research project on my hands.
In the meantime, let’s go back to the story of the crew who were left stranded in Vancouver all those years ago. What happened to them after their ride from Nova Scotia headed back east?
