Cigarette Machines. Anyone could buy cigarettes. We would always fight over who got to buy mom and dad's.
Cigarette vending machines...I remember one at the bowling alley that was converted into a candy machine (somehow) before the modern vending machines came along.
Cigarette vending machine! Today, these machines have been repurposed to sell handmade art at $5. I think they're called Art-O-Mat.

A SONY BETAMAX Video Recorder ... started the whole video craze allowing TV video recordings of favorite shows!
Sony Betamax, 1978 I think we got our first Betamax in 1983, however I'm pretty sure it looked exactly like this model. I also have a feeling that it wasn't paid for *wink wink*
Sony Betamax 1978 - Was supposed to be the best system, but VHS had more sucess

Telephone Booth. ~~~ No kids, there were no cellular phones. You had TO WALK, sorry, to the nearest telephone use coins and ask an operator to conect y our phone call. Yes, life was hard and rude... ~~~ww w.bing.com
Telephone booth- I closed myself in one of those when I was 4- I panicked!
Telephone Booth... Here's a Dime For The Pay Phone...Don't Forget to Call ...Oh, For The Return of Those Days!!
Vintage Phone Booth.... life before cell phones! We always carried a few dimes in our pockets to phone home!
My dad always asked me if I had a dime, in case I needed to make call. A dime! I wish they would recycle the booths, so people could step inside to make a cell phone call. They would be able to hear better and whole world not have to listen to they conversation.
Crazy how we used to have to find a payphone somewhere to make a phone call!
what did we ever do without cell phones? OH! pay phones.

Fotomat was a large chain of freestanding "one-day" film development stores, usually found in the middle of parking lots of shopping centers around the country. The first store opened in 1965, and the whole chain was out of business by 2002. Digital killed the Kodachrome star.

Tape from toy cap guns. My sisters and I used to "pop" them by hitting them with rocks. We had no toy gun, just imagination.....
rolls of gun caps! Never used the gun we used a hammer...I would have never let my own kids do this....I guess for this is why we have great childhood memories...parents today (including myself) are scared of everything....lol!
Do you remember cap guns? Little cowboys had a lot of fun! And the smell! That would bring back memories...
Tape from toy cap guns... We little girls did not have a toy gun so we would take a rock and beat the "bullet." Loved to smell the residue from the "bang."
Tape from toy cap guns. We were never let play with toy guns but you could hit these with a rock on the sidwalk and they would pop.
Tape from toy cap guns - and when you lost your toy gun, you got your daddy's hammer or a rock and sat on the sidewalk banging the primer until it went off. Ummmm, can you smell that gunpowder???
Tape from toy cap guns. I still have 5 or 6 cap guns and plenty of paper caps.

everyone had the original Dr. Scholl's .,... and God help you if your foot ever slid and you stepped on the back of the shoe on the hard wooden edge!

Flipping through albums in a record store...
Flipping through albums in a record store... on saturdays my mama gave me 2 quarters, lots of money back then. My best friend and I went to the movies and got a bag of popcorn AND drink with one quarter; the record shop was on the other corner. We walked there, listened to a lot of 45 records and bought one with the other quarter. So much fun :)
I could get lost in a record store when I was a kid. I may be on iTunes and still have my CDs but there was nothing like buying a new LP or 45 and opening it, playing it and reading and enjoying the cover art and liner notes.
Flipping through albums in a record store... We spent hours a week of our high school years in record shops and bookstores
