Rainy day fun from the 1950s

This Patons and Beehive pattern for raglan sweaters from the 1950s neatly sums up the entire range of rainy day activities available for boys at the time.

One: Stand over your sister in an intimidating manner while she thinks about touching your train set.

Two: Build a house of cards after being sent to your room for belting your sister after she derailed your Hornby 00 locomotive and got toffee on your coal wagon. It's not fair.
