Childhood Memories, Window Tray, Drive In, Fast Food, 1950 S
The Frostop near Jordan High School had rootbeer in frosty mugs, roller-skating carhops, and car window trays. (60's)

Vintage fast food! Window tray at a drive-in. My very first job was at a drive-in called 'The Flat Top'
Window tray at the drive-in. Sometimes the car hops roller-skated to your car with your order. So exciting when I was a little kid.

Drive-In Reminiscing I saw this picture going around Facebook - does anyone remember these? Well, as a child of the 60’s and 70’s, I sure do!! In fact, I’m lucky to live near a place where these are still being used – the Drive-In movie theater. The antique looking speakers are still in position at one of the few drive-in theaters we have left in Minnesota.

Speakers that would hang on your car window at the drive-in movie theaters...can't even count the number we drove away with because we forgot to put them back on the rack! :(
We went to the drive-in theater in Decorah in the late 70's early 80's. Good times!
Memories of growing up in the 50's/60's - speakers at the drive-in

Big Window, Window Crank, Manual Window, Wing Window, Door Handle
manual window crank - when you actually rolled the windows down... one for the vent window, one for the big window and the pull up handle to get out.
Manually operated car windows: one crank was for the small, triangular-shaped vent window (some were swivel mechanisms without cranks, made to push out/pull in/latch), and the other for the side window. Door handles lifted up.
We actually rolled the windows down with a manual window crank! The smaller crank was for the vent window.
Actually rolling the window down. One handle for the big window, and another for the little triangular window in front.The vent window.. wish we still had vent windows they were great..

Milk Man, Milk Bottle, Baby Boomer
How people got their milk back in the day (40's, 50's) in Huntington, My uncle was a milk man in Ripley
I don't remember ever seeing our milk man but I definitely remember having glass milk bottles delivered to our front porch where our wooden milk box was...
The milkman came twice a week....empties by the front door and a gallon of fresh whole and horribly high cholesterol left....glass bottles....awesome tasting. The Good Old Days....SH
milk man in the 60's | ...When his family was small, to make ends meet he was a minl man and delivered milk for the town of Bastrop, LA
The milk man...REALLY!!! I was really little then but in the early 60's I remember that the milk man delivered milk to your door. He put it in the metal box that we kept on the door step that kept it cool.
A milk man. Remember those days? In elementary school (Atwater) we had small glass milk bottles through the second grade. We always returned them to the wire basket afterwards.
This is how we got milk, in glass bottles that the milk man brought twice a week. If you needed more or less than usual, you left him a note.
Milk Man~ We had a little, metal, insulated box that sat outside our front door and the Milk Man put the fresh milk in it and took the empty jars from it.
Mr Timmerman was our milk man. Early 70's
Oh the good old days before the gimme generation.

Defrosting a freezer
Ice Cubes, Childhood Memories, Ice Trays, Ice Cube Trays, Memory Lane, Baby Boomer
http://www.kitchenstyleideas.com/category/Ice-Tray/ omg, these teeny tiny old freezer compartments that didn't hold squat - this one is actually bigger than I remember - ours held 2 stacked ice cube trays and maybe a few packages - and what a pain to defrost!! we've come a long way... thank goodness
Defrosting a freezer ~ what a chore that was! A childhood memory of my mother defrosting this freezer
Defrosting a freezer We are still using my grandmothers refrigerator with the freezer compartment like this one.. Our frig must be at least 60 years old and still runs like new even after being used in a garage for 40 years.
ice cube trays and if they were overfilled when you pulled the lever up really hard the cubes would fly all over
Ice cube trays in the small freezer compartment in your refrigerator ~ took forever to make ice cubes!
Metal Ice-Cube Trays Husband and I were just talking about these ---after our ice maker broke down
Still use these ice cube trays. Best thing ever, they never break like the ice cube maker does.
Defrosting a freezer~Memory Lane was not all fun; ) Eyes on the prize.

1974~speed limit lowered to 55 mph~55 Saves Lives. I actually think I remember this and my dad telling a story about driving cross-country at 70 mph in a Model -T (I don't think they went that fast...I'm probably combining 2 stories!).
1974 - speed limit lowered to 55 mph- I remember this! And that's when it took 3-3.5 hrs to get from Bis to Fargo,to get back to college..
1974 - speed limit lowered to 55 mph ... It felt like 25 out on those lonely West Texas roads that go on for miles with nothing but pumpjacks.
1974 - speed limit lowered to 55 mph,,,I remember driving with my grandpa and the speed being 70 mph!~
1974 - speed limit lowered to 55 mph. I remember this vividly - it was my senior year in high school.
1974 - speed limit lowered nationally to 55 mph to save gasoline...
1974 - speed limit lowered to 55 mph due to gasoline shortages.

Bucket List, Drive, Movie Theater, Movie Theatre, Drive In
drive-in theaters. Never got a chance to go and now they've phased out its on my bucket list for sure
Drive-In Movie Theaters - essentially a large outdoor screen where a film is projected. People park their vehicles and hang a speaker from the inside of their window, and watch. 50 cents a car. Mom would pop corn and make Koolaid and sometimes hot-dogs wrapped in slices of bread, and it was fun.

Gas Stations used to be called service stations ... they would rush to your car, check the water and oil, put air in your tires, wash your windows, and pump your gas.
Service Stations, Childhood Memories, Stations Attendant, Full Service, Checked Oil, Gas Stations, Windows Checked, Gas Pumps
Do you remeber the SERVICE STATION attendents who wore ties? They gladly checked 'under the hood' and cleaned your windows. Gasoline was about 25 cents a gallon back then. I liked the bottled soda in the very cold machines at the gas stations. They always had tiny bits of ice in the bottles which made the Coke or Pepsi more refreshing..
Service [not gas] Stations. Attendant(s) would pump gas, check oil level, add air to tires and clean windshield.
Gas stations began life as Service Stations. Attendants would rush to the car, check the water, check the oil, air up the tires, wash the windows, pump the gas, and collect payment all with a smile while the drivers sat in the comfort of their cars. How I met my hubby...lol dg
Gas Stations used to pump your gas, washed the windows, checked oil and other fluids under the hood,...
Gas Stations used to be called, "Service Stations." The gas station attendant at the Grand Canyon North Rim still dresses similarly, 6-2013 nostalgia!
For those of you who don't know, this is a "station attendant" who would fill your car at "full service" gas stations. Vintage shots from days gone by!
Gas Station Attendant - In times past wherever we went to get gas, there would be a gas jockey waiting to pump our gas for us, wash our windows, check our oil and make sure our car was in tip top shape. However, the existence of full service gas stations has dwindled greatly. Except for two US states, Oregon and New Jersey—where customers are not allowed to pump their own gas—full service gas stations basically don’t exist.

School lunch trays in mint green. I remember it well. We scraped many a tray (and saved out many a brownie to give to our friends).
Old school lunch trays-- I remember that the lunch ladies wouldn't let you dump your tray until you ate everything. We got smart- drank all of our milk then shoved the food in the milk carton!
THIS IS WHY I HATE FOR MY FOOD TO TOUCH!!! Ha ha.....old school lunch trays. Dig that mint green color! Appetizing!! Bring on the sloppy joes!

8 Track tape player. For my high school graduation my dad said he would put a stereo in my 1971 Chevelle. So I had to decide between a stereo with an 8-track player and a cassette player. Yep - I picked the 8-track player. Story of my life.
8 Track tape player - remember pulling up to college and unloading HUGE speakers and my stereo with an 8 track player, now you get much better sound out of an ipod...
8 Track tape player... My mom's car had power locks and windows, but an eight track player! Jajaja!!!!
I had an 8-track tape players in my car. By my senior year in high school, I could no longer buy 8-track tapes and started carring a boom box with a cassette player in my car.
