Rotary Dial~ Phone numbers used to be according to letter, e.g., Lincoln 54321 So the phone number was 545 321 and that's why we originally had letters on our rotary phones.

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.
Television Antenna.... we had to go outside with a pipe wrench to turn it while someone else stood at the window and pounded on the window when the picture came in
Television Antenna. Did ya ever have to go out and turn it while someone inside was yelling "No, turn it back a little"! ???

Wood paneling, heavy box TVs that look like a piece of furniture (with clunky dials for VHF and UHF), bunny ear antennas and tchotchkes. Um, don't look at my paneled wall in my living room.
@Lauren Davison Davison Davison Owens, www.laurenowensphotography.com Looks quite a bit like our living room growing up. Console TV, brown, inexpensive (re:cheap) paneling. Yep.
Remember when televisions functioned like a piece of furniture and people always put their framed family photos on top of them? I think our family had a black & white TV until I was about 8, then we got our 1st color TV. There was never any fighting over the remote - you had to get off your lazy butt, walk over to the TV, and turn the dial to change the channel if you wanted to watch something else. :-)

Old metal ice trays with a difficult lever to pull. They were miserably cold. I think I'll go kiss my ice maker.
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!.....
lol... this is how we made ice back in the olden days ... by the 1960s there were plastic ones that you'd twist to loosen the ice cubes. I still like these old metal ones best! still have a few
The 1st modern ice cube trays, and they worked better than the plastic ones we have now. Wish they still made them.

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"!

This is what our TV looked like. Us kids were the human "remote controls" and turn the dial (luckily there were only 3 channels).

Banquet TV Dinner (heated in its metal pan in the oven before microwaves) - These were all the rave for busy housewives... Next came TV trays for easier eating in the living room.
I still like TV Dinners, but I miss the aluminum tray. These were the pre-microwave days. It took a little longer, but I think they tasted better from the conventional oven.

All In The Family TV show - this show was so funny. Sad it would be considered politically incorrect these days.
1971 Archie Bunker, was a working-class family man who held bigoted, conservative views of the world. His viewpoints clash with nearly everyone he comes into contact with especially his liberal son-in-law Mike Stivic (or, as Archie delights in calling him, "Meathead").

Vintage 1960's Original Slinky Toy, made from 80 feet of wire . In Excellant Condition. Original Box. Slinky debuted at Gimbel's Depart. Store in Philadelphia, Pa. during the 1945 Christmas season and then at the 1946 American Toy Fair. Richard James and Betty James founded James Spring & Wire Company then renamed it James Industries. Unfortunately in 1960, Richard suffered from a mid-life crisis and left his wife, six children, and the Slinky Empire to join a Bolivian religious order/cult. His wife Betty James took over as CEO, and rescued the company from the debts left by her husband's generosity to his religion. She moved the company to its current Hollidaysburg location from Philadelphia and began an active advertising campaign complete with the famous Slinky jingle.(Below) Richard James died in 1974. The line was sold in 1998 to Poof Toys. "What walks down stairs, alone or in pairs, And makes a slinkity sound?
