Television. The way it used to be. You had to get up to change channels or adjust volume! How did we ever manage with such an imposition!
Television the way it used to be: 3 channels, black & white, rabbit ears, and no remote!
Television dials. before 16:9 and 9:6 there were 4:3.and switches - @pepevillaverde
Walking ALL the way across the room to change channels. Grandma's House!

...rotary dial phones
Dial Telephone, Dial Phone
...rotary dial phones. Now this takes me back! But I had phones before we had rotary dials! You would pick up the phone and the operator (my mother was one) would ask who you wanted to be connected with! My dad was very instrumental in our state working for the Bell Co - in converting most of the state to Direct dial with a rotary phone!
...rotary dial phones this was a pay phone that one dime would be used to make a local call
oh ya . . . and we thought this was technology . . . I'm talkin' the '60's here . . .
rotary dial phones, Dial 99 for fire police ambulance, Dial 100 for operator
Rotary dial phones. And telephone numbers all started with letters...
over 70% of the population has never seen or touched one of these!

TV 70s - $1650 for an analog, monophonic color TV? Then again, in the '90's, that cost could get you a 2Gb desktop computer.

the old way to search for a book....been there done that!
Library Book, 1980, Childhood Memories, Old School, Library Cards, Dewey Decimal, 80 S
Library card catalogue, the old-school way of looking up books...can you say dewey decimal system (I knew ya could).
Library Card Catalogue - The one you were looking for was usually missing. Ahh.. Yes... The good old Dewey Decimal System!!
library card catalogue ---almost a relic in today's electronic age. I still remember using the Dewey Decimal System
the obsolete library card catalogue ---oh the memories of having the Dewey Decimal System painfully drilled into my head.
Want to blow a kids mind? Tell them that the research paper due next week has to be done using ONLY the library card catalogue and the Dewey Decimal System! NO COMPUTERS OR SEARCH ENGINE ALLOWED! Think they'd appreciate us "old farts" a little more then? In today's world, having to do a research paper the old school way is far worse than having "to walk to school, in the snow, up a hill both ways"!
I <3 old school library card catalogues. #reading #library #books #classic

TV Antenna...I remember when EVERY house in the neighborhood had one on their roof before the advent of cable. When my daughter was little she noticed the old antenna next door and asked why there was a rake on the roof.
TV Antenna. They were on every house & sometime someone had to go & move it around to get better reception, lol : )
Television Antenna. Did ya ever have to go out and turn it while someone inside was yelling "No, turn it back a little"! ???
.Television Antenna.... Remember the flat cord that went from that to the TV set.
Television Antenna, cable TV was unheard of. We got 4 stations 4,5,7 and 11.

Dallas - TV Series
Favorite Tv, Tv Series, Nu'Est Jr, Dallas Tv, Tv Shows, Friday Night, 80 S
Dallas (TV Series 1978–1991) I remember me and a friend was quite into this , especially when J.R. was shot
Dallas (1978-1991) Larry Hagman, Ken Kercheval, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Barbara Bel Geddes, Victoria Principal
Dallas 1978-1991 The soapy, backstabbing Ewing family, oil magnets, lived at South Fork ranch just outside Dallas. There was a matriarch & patriarch & three sons. Bobby & older brother J.R. didn't play nice with each other. J.R. was nearly a 100% scoundrel, Bobby had discernable streaks of honesty & integrity…but viciousness reared its head once in a while. The South Fork ranch housed Jock & Miss Ellie, J.R. & long-suffering wife Sue Ellen, Bobby & Pam.

Metal Trays, Ice Cubes, Childhood Memories, 70 S Ice, Ice Trays, Ice Cube Trays, 1960 S
Ice trays in the 60's and 70's. The darn things stuck to your hands painfully when you took them out of the freezer. You wanted to get them under the water faucet as quickly as possible to loosen the cubes and unstick your skin!.....
Old metal ice trays with a difficult lever to pull. They were miserably cold. I think I'll go kiss my ice maker.
Vintage ice cube trays- The handle to loosen the cubes never worked, you'd have to bang it on the edge of the counter top.
The 1st modern ice cube trays, and they worked better than the plastic ones we have now. Wish they still made them.
Metal ice cube trays - I hated when the metal stuck to my hands.
lol...ice cream cubes with condensmilk,water and vanilla
The ice always got stuck in these old metal trays.
