1950 Raytheon TV

  • Bud Parker

    My uncle was a TV Repairman and made a good living doing it. Of course, now we just get a new one. The Really old sets took two grown men to move! Full of "tubes" and a huge, heavy CRT. Cathode Ray Tube. That was the screen. You had "Rabbit Ears" antenna sitting on top of the TV so you could adjust them for the station you were watching. Most cities had 2 or 3 stations. If you lived out of town you got a "snowy" picture because of poor reception. Affluent families had an outside antenna on a tall pole...

  • Patricia

    I was one back in the day . I served food on the maternity floor.

  • Patricia

    sorry, comment belongs on the Candy Striper picture.

  • Emma Semon

    I remember the round tv screens but not this particular brand.

  • Dorene Rusho

    I remember going to my aunt's house and she had a tv with a big cabinet and a small square screen. I was about 9 yrs old.

Tinker Toys

  • Jack Meili

    I received a set (larger, I think) for Christmas when I was about 8? (1942). Had lots of fun with them. Had a Lincoln Log Cabin set for another Christmas present and an Erector Set for yet another. They knew how to keep me out of mischief. Perhaps why I became an engineer.

  • Masha Rosenthal

    We had these too. Years later there were pieces all over our backyard!

  • Tom R. Chambers

    I played with my "Tinkertoys" a great deal.

  • Lee Potts

    I boughht these for my grandchildren! It was the only thing I had for them that entertained ALL of them at the same time!. (There was a nine year age difference from oldest to youngest.)

  • Dorene Rusho

    I remember my brother had these. He played with them all the time.

Played these with my grandmother! Chinese Checkers in a Tin with Regular Checkers on the other side and marbles and red/black checkers inside

Candy stripers!

  • Deborah Bishop

    This was a favorite thing of mine to do!!!

  • Judy McKeown

    I remember my daughter did this :-)

  • Patricia

    Hi Judy, I didn't become a nurse, but always admire those who did, and I do have friends who are retired nurses, too! One is a woman who is retired and one is a man who is still working!

  • Sheryl Martin

    Was candystriper at Crowley Hospital in Louisiana in the 60's. I did not become a nurse either and regreted that but was bigger deal then and I got married. lol

  • Patricia

    Yes, Cheryl, we all followed our dreams. I know I didn't have the constitution for being a nurse. I married young, also and had three children and now 5 grandchildren ! I'm happy for my choice!

my Mom had these

  • Dorothy Wirth

    My mother-in-law stored them wrapped in wax paper and refreshed the color with melted Crayola crayons. They were always put out on December 1.

  • Shirley Cooper

    I used these and other choir member candles, candle trees and lamp posts to make a scene using snow made from Ivory flakes. Can't find those anymore. My son, 54, remembers this and often asks me to do it again!

  • Charlene Kowalski

    Still have my mothers too! There is a picture of me playing with them at the age of two.

  • Shirley Cooper

    Nice to know that many folks still cling to some of the "older" ways of decorating!

  • Peggy Schneider Saez

This used to be the only way to get the window down in your car!

  • Carolyn Powell

    you can still buy cars with crank windows because my grandson has one. The basic of the basic and his is a 2008 or 9.

  • Amy Feltz

    Only way to roll them down in those days...frightening!

  • Josephine Thompson

    gosh i remember when....

  • Velda Crotty

    I have a 64 Mustang convertible. My 7 year old granddaughter loves to put the top down and go cruising. She couldn't figure out how to get the window down. I told her to roll it down. She looked at me with a blank look. I showed her how and she was thrilled. She sat there and rolled it up and down. It was like a new toy to her.
