THE MORE THINGS CHANGE THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME!

I am reading Agatha Christies -- The Mirror Crack'd -- I was struck by this ( edited slightly for brevity)

(describing the "Development" a group of houses)...it was like a neat model built with childs blocks. It hardly seemed real to Miss Marple.
Ths people, too, looked unreal. The trousered young women, the rather sinister-looking young men and boys, the exuberant bosoms of the fifteen-year old girls. Miss Marple couldn't help thinking that it all looked terribly depraved.

She wrote this in 1962 -- I guess somethings are constant, even if they feel new to us!
