Although they’re all a tad before my time (I’m from 1953) I can relate to these slightly idyllic rural and family scenes and prefer them over much of the crap that surrounds me today, no matter whether I’m in Britain, Canada, Germany or here in France, and no matter whether big city or country side. The world has changed a lot over the past 60+ years.
