rotary dial phone ...... I still remember our phone number from when I was in the 1st grade! My mother drilled it into my head!! haha!! NE88612
when phone numbers started with 2 letters and one had to turn the number to the right with one's finger (rotary phone)
How to use a dial telephone..... ha I also remember phones with no dials and operators who asked for the # before the rotary dial phones were around. Party lines were the norm until Private lines were available. So many changes since the 1940's.
Many of today's "younger generation" still don't know how to use a rotary dial telephone. Tape this simple diagram near each telephone, and soon junior and sis will learn to make their own calls!
Rotary dial phones. Our phone number was EMpire 3-7619. The first 2 two letters were changed into numbers, so you would dial 363-7619.
How to use a dial telephone. (for the record, I grew up with a rotary dial phone)

1950 Raytheon T.V. Can remember our first television...got it when I was about 5 or 6 years old. It had a screen the size of a dinner plate and we could only pick up one channel and when the sound quit working, we sat a radio on the table next to it and listened on radio...do TV shows still air on radio?

So true. The younger grandkids have already asked how when I told them to roll it down...
Definately don't miss this childhood memory. Boy have we gotten spoiled, or lazy!
The struggle was SO REAL in the 90′s (25 photos) - 90s-probs-3
manually rolling down car window, thank God this is obsolete now
So true. When we had to roll our car windows down..
So true. Ha! My first car had manual window.
