*safety pins* not just 1950's, I used them 1978-1987 with cloth diapers on my kids. Disposable diapers didn't come on the market until the late 70's.
*safety pins* ~ actually they are "Diaper Pins" ~ that's right, we used to use "cloth" diapers and pin them pin with these cute diaper pins that locked. I'd usually have to run them through my hair or a bar of soap so they would glide more smoothly. Disposable diapers were just coming available when I had Tracy

I'd usually have to run them through my hair or a bar of soap so they would glide more smoothly. Disposable diapers were for car trips, vacations or the well-to-do. The "very" rich used a diaper service and a Nanny did the pinning.

♡ Are you lucky enough to remember when carhops brought your tray out like this, Friday night at the Drive-in Movie?♡
Drive In Movies. So much fun, no one cared that the speakers never worked well. Sleeping bags in the back of the station wagon... good times.
Pull in to a drive-in restaurant, and a car-hop rushed to your window, took your order, then returned with your food. Or, you placed your order on the speaker and the car hop brought it out.
Fast Food Drive in - A car hop would bring your order on a tray that clipped on the car window. Love the mustard and catsup bottles; so much better than individual packets, which also wastes far too much plastic.
Coke, being served at the AW Root Beer, Stand, the car hop, waitress, would take your order, and bring your food and drinks, out to your car, and the tray, attached to your door. To the Original Pinner: this is a Drive In Movie Theater.....see the Speaker?
