Those were the days. Also when the street lights came on I had to be home! We had lots more freedom than kids today. Can't help thinking the old days were better for kids at least!!!
I keep seeing things like these all over the internet. If we loved growing up that way, we need to make sure that our kids grow up the same. I think it's time we go old school a little more with our way of teaching and thinking :)
Childhood memories! (:

Gas Station Attendant -- they would fill your tank, clean your windows, check the oil and the tire pressure. They did all of this as part of the "SERVICE," when you stopped at the Service Station. Those were the days!
Gulf Gas Station Attendant... I really would love a full service gas station! I hate pumping gas!

Dust bowl life. Interesting fact: when the flour companies learned that the poor in the dust bowl were sewing flour bags together to make dresses and other clothing for the children, they began selling their flour in different decorative bags with flowers and such things printed on them so that the "clothing" made would be a bit more attractive and fun. And the little girls really appreciated that. It's the little things....

In multipanel narratives and starkly composed single frames, in telling black-and-white and expressionistic color, Leroy accomplished the paradoxical feat that all great war photographers must. In the last, he gazes off -- hopeless, slack-jawed, desperate for a deliverance that will never come -- his hand still pressing a futile bandage down in place on the other man's chest. Leroy caught it all -- as well as a fourth shot of the Marine charging off madly with his rifle -- without benefit of a motor drive on her camera. With the disorienting images of the Iraq war still accumulating in the public consciousness, the evocation of Vietnam in "Under Fire" is both pointed and pertinent. With unprecedented access, an evolving photo technology and the shifting moral climate of that war, photographers (and their TV and film counterparts) brought the war home in all its horrific and intimate specificity. While embedded reporters and photographers operate under the strictures of military control, unofficial digital leaks -- most notably in the Abu Ghraib prison photos -- expose a weird, chaotic underbelly. For all the flood of images Iraq has produced, in a delivery system profoundly changed by the Internet and cable TV's incessant news cycle, there's an odd hollowness at the core, a sense of vacancy between the two extremes. Writing in the "Under Fire" book, Fred Ritchin argues that the embedded journalists in Iraq "produced photographs that reiterate World War II-styles images of heroism in the struggle to liberate occupied lands." Digital technology and its resulting tight deadlines, Ritchin continues, have pressured news photographers to produce images on almost instant demand. [...] U.S. soldiers, Iraqi citizens, tourists and anyone else on the scene are out recording their own digital versions of the war and transmitting them around the world from laptops or Internet cafes. Any war photograph is a time-locked artifact of its age, an expression of the ideology, technology, governmental policy and moral temper of a particular point in history. Photography and the American Experience of Combat, serve as a distillation of battle for home consumption, an epiphany of life and death. Yet whether it's the stately Civil War carnage Timothy O'Sullivan caught after the Battle of Gettysburg, Robert Capa's famous image of a mortally wounded militiaman falling backward on a hillside in the Spanish Civil War or the masterly Vietnam compositions of Larry Burrows that appear in "Under Fire," a tension between the subject and admiration for the means of expression often arises in the viewer. Leroy, who was captured and briefly held by the North Vietnamese Army during the Tet Offensive, took 40 pieces of shrapnel in a subsequent mortar attack. Leroy had trouble reconnecting with liberal friends who had spent the war in Left Bank-Right Bank intellectual skirmishes. After months of negotiations with the U.S. Parks Service, Leroy has secured a permit for "Witness to War, Vietnam 1954-1975," an exhibition of 75 large-format photographs to be mounted near the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., in July. In one raw and transfixing shot, a U.S. soldier has just landed a punch to the face of a Viet Cong he's caught hiding in a stream, both men half- submerged in murky water.

The men who raised the second flag over Iwo Jima. Iconic photo taken on February 23, 1945, by Joe Rosenthal. It depicts five United States Marines and a U.S. Navy corpsman raising the flag of the United States atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.
Joe Rosenthal's Pulitzer Prize winning AP photo of the Feb. 23, 1945 flag raising on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, was originally misidentified by military sources. Originally identified, from left, in graphic: Pfc. Franklin R. Sousley; Pfc. Ira Hayes; Sgt. Michael Strank; Pharmacist's Mate 2nd Class John H. Bradley; Pfc. Rene A. Gagnon; Sgt. Henry O. Hansen. The Marine at far right was later correctly identified as Cpl. Harlon Block, not Hansen. (/Joe Rosenthal) #History #WWII History and WWII

Cecile Cowdery drew on the envelopes of letters to her husband during WW2: "After my first colorful envelope arrived, Ray let me know it had drawn a lot of attention from the other soldiers. From then on, I dared not let up! I drew those scenes to help him feel special. While other soldiers got “Dear John” letters, my man was assured daily by my sharing of remembered things from back home."
