Drive-In Movie Sound System.....Speakers at the drive in...one for your car...one for the car on the other side of you....
Drive, Movie Theater, Drive In, Baby Boomer
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 for drivein theatre hung on window for picture sound. I remember the Drive in near Brookfield Square and seeing Charleston Heston in 'Soyent Green' and many other movies on hot Summer nights. These speakers hooked on our Pontiac, our CougarXR7 and probably a few other cars.
Throw back to the 60's, 70's and 80's maybe even the 90's but definitely not the 00's!!! #60's #80's #retro #oldiebutgoodie

Memories of growing up in the 50's/60's - speakers at the drive-in
What is it? ___________________ Today's Quiz: What IS This Contraption Pictured Above: A. Mitt Romney's Heart B. Mitt Romney's Communication System to the Planet Kolob C. Mitt Romney D. Drive-in Movie Speakers _________________________ Answer: Drive-in Movie Speakers Once upon a time Drive-In Movie (outdoor theaters) were attended by millions of people on a weekly basis. They had their heyday in the 1950's, and by the 70's most were gone. Popcorn, candy and soda pop concessions were usually found at the base of huge screens where "creature" movies usually played. "The Creature From the Black Lagoon" and all the "GODZILLA" movies were shown with crackly speakers sounding out bad dialog that no one payed much attention to. Most of us didn't go to "drive-ins" to watch a movie anyway. "Drive-Ins" were where many of us who grew up in the 50's got our 'sex educations'. "First Base-Second Base-Third Base", and if we got really lucky, "HOME-RUN" SEX! When most of us left the "Drive-IN" we usually did so with wet, stained under wear that we washed ourselves because we didn't want our parents knowing what really happened at the "Drive-IN. Too much information? Maybe. But some of our memories are stirred by those old speakers. If you were born after 1970, you probably didn't have a clue as to what that contraption was. Now you know! It's a sex education instrument used by your parents and grand parents. You have computers and virtual games. We had "Drive-INS" that provided direct hands-on training. J.
You know you are a baby boomer, born in the 1950s and 1960s if you remember when: The milk man cometh the World Book Encyclopedia salesman showed up at your family's front door going to the drive-in movies with your parents was exciting (I remember seeing Goldfinger at Timonium Drive-In....shhh...don't tell my parents. I was…
Drive-in movies. Good memories.
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.

A&W Root Beer Stands
The memories of going to A & W for a Root Beer Float with my girl!
Drive, Drive In
drive - in restaurants with carhops. Mom used to take us to Sydney's Drive-In in Woflin Village in Amarillo when we were kids in the fifties. Dad would take us to A Rootbeer stand for root beer floats. And this is why I go to Sonic as often as possible!
I remember going to the A&W for a Baby Burger and Root Beer Float in the 70's....rolling around in the back of the station wagon with my brother & sister. Sometimes Mom would get Dad to buy a jug of Root Beer to take home. We'd chug it right from the bottle. Good Times!!
A&W Drive-ins with the tray on the window...oh, what good times we had there! Root beer floats and an order of nuggets, which we now call tater tots.
At the Drive-In by Dusty_73, via Flickr Carhops took your order at your car then brought it to you on a tray like this that hung on your car window. I LOVED these. Those were the days... sigh... and those A Root Beer Floats!
Drive-ins and car hops--I remember this when I was really little. Mom would reach around to us in the back and hand us napkins first.
A & W Driveins. We had a drive in called Hopper.

Window tray at the drive-in..burgers in a plastic reusable basket, reusable ketchup and mustard plastic bottles, glass bottled soda also reusable....hmmm...pretty smart in the "old days"...now where's that car hop?
I remember window trays at the drive-in fast food places like A & W - burgers in a plastic reusable basket, reusable ketchup and mustard squeezers, and glass mugs for pop.
Drive-in car hop service. We had an AW that still had car hop service in the early 60's. We'd all go there after school and of course, the guys would cruise through in their "cool" cars. jj
window tray at the drive-in... one of my favorite treats as a kid... A root beer stand... I loved it when my parents would stop in... D
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. Car hop was my first real job at $1/hour in 1968. Clamped on thousands of these that summer! Took me all summer to save enough for contact lenses.
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.

Childhood Memories, Loop Potholder, Weaving Loom, Memory Lane, Pot Holders, Making Potholders
Would make when I was around 10 in the early 60's and go door to door selling these...15 cents each or 2 for a quarter!
I Used To Make Potholders....I Still Had A Pot Holder Loom Until Last Year When It Broke And When I Was Between Jobs I Made Some For My Late Mother... They StIll Make These Craft Toys And Michael's Craft Store Carries Them.
I loved making pot holders when I was a kid! And when I ran out of colored strings I cut up my mother's panty hose to use. Not quite as pretty.
Woven-loop pot holders. I did not make potholders with my loops ever, I made doll clothes:)
I use to make these little Pot Holders! <3 these Childhood Memories!

Another thing kids today will probably never recognize...
45 Insert, Childhood Memories, 45 Records, Today S Kids, Thing Kids, Kids Today
Do you recognize this? 45 insert if you didn't have a built-in adapter on your record player. If you didn't have one of these you had to carefully center your 45 on the turntable and try to get it as straight as possible. It would still sound slighty funky!
Most kids don't even know what this is...center for 45rpm records for record players without pop-up center
Another thing kids today will probably never recognize...they went in the middle of your "45" record so they could play on your turntable record player.
Another thing kids today will probably never recognize...For those kids that don't know what this is, it's a plastic disc that fit in the hole of a 45 record so you could play it on a record player that didn't have an adapter for 45 records. Not that any of you know what the h*ll a 45 record is...
Another thing kids today will probably never recognize - it went in the middle of a 45 record to make it playable on a regular record player
Another thing kids today will probably never recognize... a 45 adapter for record players!!!
