Television Antenna. TV was free until cable. All you had to do was put up an antenna on your roof and plug in the TV.
TV Antenna...I remember when EVERY house in the neighborhood had one on their roof. Those were the days!!
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-was even greater when we got a electric roter so yoou didnt have to go outside to turn the Antenna to change the station! Ah the days before Cable,Internet,Satelite !!! Much better times I think!
TV Antenna. They were on every house & sometime someone had to go & move it around to get better reception, lol : )
.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.
Television Antenna...and it was free to watch tv!

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.
When most homes had living rooms that were similar to this. Reminds me of my Grandparents house right down to the paneling and stuff on the console TV.
@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.
Wood paneling, heavy box TVs that look like a piece of furniture (with clunky dials for VHF and UHF), bunny ear antennas and tchotchkes. :) The good old days! this sets were placed kitty-corner at the front left corner of the living room.
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. :-)

lol...kids 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.
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!.....
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.
What a pain these ice trays were - but - I still have one for old times sake!
lol...ice cream cubes with condensmilk,water and vanilla
The ice always got stuck in these old metal trays.

...rotary dial phones..by the way this is the faceplate of a public pay phone rotary dial. Loved the fact the phone number is plain to see on the front (not bury in its insides as on cell phones today).
A #rotary #dial #phone. These were amazing to us. Before rotary phones, we had party lines, and calls that were made using a lever where we would make one long rotation and then one short.
oh ya . . . and we thought this was technology . . . I'm talkin' the '60's here . . .
Rotary dial phones. And telephone numbers all started with letters...
Over "70"% of the population has never seen or touched one of these!

Do you remember the character name of the man in this Charmin commercial and what he asked us not to do? If you know the answers, keep them to yourself and pin it!
Mr. Whipple --- he was SUCH a Perv. Holding heavily perfumed (so bad for women especially) toilet paper, w/dyed colors that were made illegal. He squeezed the Charmin like they were breasts. I loathed this icky character. Before Sex Harassment was even a word.
Mr. Whipple Note: my parents were mortified when this commercial aired! Talking about toilet paper on tv. My dad said next thing you know they'll be talking about feminine products!hahahah
Mr. Whipple, who always seemed to be found in the toilet paper aisle. Maybe his wife wouldn't let him squeeze anything....
Mr. George Whipple is a fictional supermarket manager featured in television commercials and print advertisements that ran in the United States and Canada from 1964 to 1985 for Charmin toilet paper. In unvarying repetition, Whipple scolds customers who "squeeze the Charmin," while hypocritically entertaining such actions himself when he thinks no one will notice. The character and catchphrase were created by John Chervokas.

Tubes for Radio & TV. The good old days, when we could check these tubes and replace them as necessary. YES, we could repair our televisions instead of taking them to the dump.
Tv Repair, Childhood Memories, My Dad, Tv Tubes, Vacuum Tube, Rca Tube, 60S
Tubes for Radio & TV - this is why the TV had to warm up and cool down. When you turned off the TV, you could watch the picture dissolve into an eerie green dot that faded away. My Dad fixed tv's and had a really neat tube tester. They also had tube testers in the stores.
Tubes for Radio & TV. My dad was a TV repair man; he even had his own shop. This pic sure brings back memories!
Tubes for Radio & TV ~ OMG! My Dad would spend HOURS behind that tv trying to figure out which tube was burnt out! LOL!
Tubes for Radio & TV~ There used to be tube testers inside stores. I'd watch my Daddy as he would check the tubes from our TV to see which one needed replaced. ~Moonchime

I remember our first color TV in 1966...all prime time television started broadcasting in "LIVING" color in the fall of 1965...
old nbc peacock - of course didn't see this at home because my parents didn't have a colored TV until the 80's!
NBC peacock. I remember watching this when I was a kid. It was a signal that I was glad we had a color TV.
NBC peacock in the 70's. We didn't have a color TV in the 60's. I'll never forget when I saw this for the first time in color when we traveled to visit one of my uncles in Akron OH.
NBC peacock...when we got our first color TV, this was the first thing I wanted to see! It had been weird watching it in black and white.
This was GREAT when we got a color TV! In LIVING color! We never had color TV. The first time I saw the Flintstones in color----MAGIC!!!
When we finally got a color TV. Don't remember the year....was sometime in the 1960's
We were thrilled to have color TV! Even though we didn't have one 'till 1970.

You would adjust the horizontal hold, and if that didn't work, bang on top of the TV set. That would!
OH, Yes and if that didn't work we would bang on the side of the tv
Banging the cabinet with a hefty clout achieved the same thing
...And the horizontal hold, while adjusting "rabbit ears"!
Remember adjusting the vertical hold control on your t.v.?
Who Remembers adjusting the Vertical-Hold Control ?
Omg, yes. Our TV rolled a lot!
Had to adjust horizontal too.

Before cable (rabbit ears) OMA had them on her TV she was always fixing them because the reception was bad. Good childhood memories
Rabbit ears tv antenna - so you could get ALL 3 CHANNELS clearly--and you didn't have to PAY to watch them!
Rabbit ears tv antenna - so you could get all 3 channels clearly. We all had these on top of our tvs. To make them better, you added tin foil.
rabbit ears - TV was simple - no cable or satellites everywhere. Although houses had tall TV antennas that got blown over or hit by lightning.

70's TV Sets...I only had a black and white one. Mine was in red and looked like the one on the right. My mom used to wake me up when TOTP was on, but only when Shawaddywaddy came on... <3 ahh good times.

TV dinners///my girls thought it was cool that all the food was on one tray. Their grandparents gave them Swanson dinners.
The original TV dinners. I pinned the fried chicken dinner but I don't think I've pinned the roast beef-it looks soooooyummy!
I remember Swanson TV dinners in tin trays. We considered these dinners as a treat and only ate them when my father was away. I thought the peas were quite tasty and much better than canned.
I remember TV dinners in aluminum trays. I had to beg my mom to get them for me now and then. They were HORRID but I loved the way all the stuff was separated.
