    Arm loads of books and that long walk home from school before book back-packs came in .Sometimes a boy would carry a girl's books!.

  • Terrie True

    Girls usually didn't have back-packs in the '50s and '60s. We carried our school books in our arms unless we were lucky enough to have a boy offer to carry our books for us. That was a first step toward romance!

Old School Crayons~ 8 in a box!

The only time I could talk to my friends during class was when getting out a book from the under desk shelf.

During tests we could hear the tick-tock sound of the old clock.

We couldn't wait to get the Sears Christmas Book every year...We played "circle what you want" ....lol.

Remember these.., got at least one of these every year along with the giant candy cane stick.

I don't know which I love more, the record player or the Rudolph record! This is what i got when i asked for a "stereo"!

Mimeograph machine - Teachers would use this to print worksheets for the class. If you were lucky, they were at your desk fresh and COLD and smelling wonderful!! Someone should have bottled that smell! --- and that purple color :)
