The smells of education — 2 Comments

  1. Jeepers you brought to mind the school loo’s. And in both levels they were horrid places, where only the extremely ill used and where the very notion of sitting wouldn’t enter the head.
    I’m convinced they were never cleaned.

  2. The smell of education. My primary school sixty years ago, September, the parquet floor freshly varnished (or was it oiled?), for a week or two slightly sticky until the dust had settled in.
