Remember, Rotary Dial, Dial Telephone, Vintage, Memories, Phones
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.
Vintage instructions on using that rotary dial telephone made necessary by phone numbers such as Circle 6-1234!
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.

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?

The old record players! One of my first records was Christmas with the Chipmunks. Must have driving mom and dad crazy, but they never said anything.

The old record player. I think my mom paid $10 for our first hi-fi. Records were 3 for $1 so we got "The lion sleeps tonight, Duke of Earl and Big bad John"
The old record players! My sister and I also used these as a "skating rink" for our Fisher Price Little People. Good times!

I remember you had to have these incredibly stiff leather shoes for "support" when babies were learning to walk. The bell was to hear where they were
If you're in my age bracket, these were your first walking shoes - with bells so they knew where you were.

We all wore these white baby shoes as babies. My own children did, too, without the bells.

HER LATE NIGHT CRAVINGS: May 2011
This used to be the only way to get the window down in your car!
Car, Window, Funny Stuff, Thought, So True, Things, Kid
Roll down the window... this is so true. The first time my kids saw one of these they thought the car was broken...LOL
Any guesses? lol. one of my son's friends road in our car. We have manual everything. He thought it was so cool that we rolled the window down with a handle. He says to me " we just push a button" like it was the lamest thing ever!
On my last car, the windows had cranks & my Mom wanted to roll the window down & couldn't find the button so I told her they were "manual" - we both laughed!
So true. I still have two cars that WE HAVE TO ROLL THE WINDOW DOWN... THEY ARE FROM 1991 BUT STILL .... LESS TO GO WRONG WITH
The windows still go down so the only weird thing to later generations would be "roll" right? Interesting thought though ☺
My last car, a Pontiac Sunfire, still had the roll down window knobs. Current car doesn't and I suspect I will never own another one that does. Not that it is a bad thing.
Thought I wouldn't mind buying a car with roll down windows cause I never roll the windows down, except everyday at dunkin donuts drive thru
My dad's windows were like this and my friend thought this was the coolest thing ever. I didn't know cars had electric windows until 2005.

Bread Bags, Red Rubber, Rainboots, Rain Boots, Childhood Memories, Red Rain, Baby Boomer, Rubber Boots
Red Rubber Rain Boots - This is for those of us who grew up in the 50s and 60s. These went OVER our shoes and were a pain to pull on! Always tried plastic bags over our shoes, or powder sprinkled in to ease our feet into this plastic boots!
My sister and I both had a pair of these red rubber boots. We would put bread bags on our feet first so that the boot was east to slide on
Remember the stretchy cord to keep them closed? okay, not so happy ...but definitely a childhood memory
Rainboots that went over shoes! When it snowed we would wear bread bags over the shoes but inside the boots!!!!
We would slip out foot or shoe in a bread bag and then they would slide in our rubber boots easier!!! Rubber boots-they were a MUST the couple of years we lived in Indiana.
Rubber boots over the shoes I hated these - even more so when they were a little too small and getting them on meant putting your feet into plastic bread bags.
Red Rubber Boots. I had these. They were slippery in the snow though. You could pull them over your shoes.

Vintage metal sign. We got a lot of green stamps at the gas station and grocery store. We got to lick them and put them in the book. Mom got all kinds of things with her stamp books.
S&H Green Stamps. The good ole days. This method of shopping would be so great to teach kids how to be patient and work toward buying something. So cool!
You got these stamps at the grocery store. When you had enough they could be redeamed at the S & H Green Stamp store.
Our phone number was one number off from the S Green Stamp store... We got calls intended for them daily!
Green Stamps. Store use to give out green stamps when your purchased stuff. Save them up fill up a book and you could trade them in for stuff. My grandmother use to have books of these sitting around.
I remember going with Mama to the Green Stamp store while she redeemed her Green Stamps for great things!
Green stamps were given as bonuses (the number of stamps depended on the amount of one's original purchase) from a gas station or grocery store. They were glue-backed and had to be affixed to an S&H Greenstamp book. The books were used as credit toward the cost of a premium chosen from a catalogue.
Collected these at one time... got some great sheets and towels with the stamps!
Vintage Sign. I just recently acquired one. Love it. Reminds me of my childhood.
