An old water pump. This was how we got water from the farm up on the "Adams farm" when we were enjoying time at the lake with the Cunningham Clan. There was no running water on either site but it didn't feel like "roughing it." I miss the experiences at the cabins with family. Everything felt normal and sane while we were there.
1958 Motorola Portable Radio. This was the first time radios where small enough to take with you. It was absolutely revolutionary. People could not believe it, and EVERYONE had to have one to take to picnics or the beach etc. The technology became available because of the space race, and knowing they had to have small transmitters for the space capsules.
