Our first phone was 2 long and 1 short ring, you could hear several people pick up to just listen, on the party line. Then it went to 91137, when the prefix came in, it was LYcoming 91137.

1950 Raytheon TV
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...
I was one back in the day . I served food on the maternity floor.
sorry, comment belongs on the Candy Striper picture.
I remember the round tv screens but not this particular brand.
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.

Still have mine- guess its collector item now
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.
We had these too. Years later there were pieces all over our backyard!
I played with my "Tinkertoys" a great deal.
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.)

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!
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
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 girls had these
my Mom had these
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.
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!
Still have my mothers too! There is a picture of me playing with them at the age of two.
Nice to know that many folks still cling to some of the "older" ways of decorating!

This used to be the only way to get the window down in your car!
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.
Only way to roll them down in those days...frightening!
gosh i remember when....
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.

I stomped puddles and came home with boots filled with rain water.Trouble

We had a singer in a very pretty cabinet.
Hated those boots! Chafed the backs of my legs, they let water in anyway so my feet were always wet and cold. So cold! The taller white ones were worse!
my son tried to trade his sister for a book of them.
My Aunt got me a set of milk glass lamps for a wedding gift and they are still in my bedroom.
