Drive in movie speakers! Remember going to a drive in movie with Mom and Dad on Saturday night.............
Drive in movie speakers at the drive-in movie theater! Some had playgrounds below the screen we played on before the movie started!!!
old drive-in movie theater speakers. My parents used to take us to the drive-in with a pile of pillows and blankets in the back seat. We would wear footie pajamas and fall asleep before the movie was over. Those were the days <3
Drive in movie speakers. You'd hang them on your car window. I can still remember drive-in movies so well. Me and Mom and Dad would go to the one in Manchester all the time.

♡ 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?

45 rpm records 'stacked' waiting their turn to play via the Auto Changer. #music #recordplayer #records #vinyl #turntable #audio http://www.pinterest.com/TheHitman14/for-the-record/
45 RPM records with a stacker = big time! I've still got a slew of 45 records and a record player to play them on.
Stacking 45 rpm records. We could also stack multiple LP records (albums) on our record player--it was nice not to have to get up all the time to switch out the records!
This is a 45 RPM record player (one song on each side of the record) with an automated stacker for playing the next record. I always remember having to clean the accumulated dust off the needle after playing a couple of records.
45 RPM records played by the stack. A little removable piece hooked on the record player to play 45's. We would stack 6 at a time.
45 RPM records with a stacker --1 hour of babysitting = 1 record (50 cents an hour= 49 cent record)

Remember when people actually measured your shoe size for you?
Shoe Sizer, Buying Shoes, Size Shoe, Baby Boomer, Measuring Device
Something that should make a comeback: measuring your foot at the shoe store and buying shoes that actually fit! >>They still have these @ Fazio's in Pleasantville, NJ. My fave shoe store.
Shoe scale, to find out what size shoe you wore. I also remember getting my feet x-rayed a couple of times when I was a kid ... right there in the middle of the shoe store! It was just a new gimmick to bring customers to the store. Folks were naive/uninformed back then about the dangers of overexposure to x-rays. (Yikes!)
measured ones shoe size. When I was young the only place to buy shoes was a shoe store, where they measured your feet with this!
Every shoe store had these to measure your foot for the correct size shoe.
I use to use this when I worked at Gallenkamp Shoes back in the 70's!
I used one of these when I worked at Green's Shoe Store in the '80's
