Lanol White shoe polish, I used this on my band shoes and sometimes tennis shoes when they were really old.
Polish those saddle shoes with Lanol White! - and I bought many bottles in nursing school and beyondfor my clinics as well
Great for saddle shoes! You got home, wiped your shoes off, then sat down to polish the scuff marks so they were ready for tomorrow. Took a while for layers of polish to dry! Had to keep school shoes in good shape.

THE CHAIR ... Dental chair. This is how it looked when I was a child. Barbaric. Hated the dentist.
Childhood Memories, Dentist S Chair, Scary Place, Dentist S Office, 50S, The Dentist
THE CHAIR ... Dental chair. This is how it looked when I was a child, and the dentist wore a funky smock/uniform.
dentist office in the 50s & 60s (and before) My sister and I mixed our own fillings (mercury) with a mortar and pestle, and the drill was SLOW speed. Our dentist's office could have been in a museum.
dentist office in the 60s. it was the original "little shop of horrors." the only redeeming thing about going to the dentist was the soda fountain downstairs where I was rewarded with a coke.
My dentist's office looked like this :( Now the dentist chair is so comfortable you almost feel like your floating.
Scary....dentist offices in the 60s. Yep.....that's why I still get jumpy going to the dentist yet today. !!!
Scary....dentist offices in the 70s. I spent more than my fair share on the dentist chair.
dentist office in the 50s. The same or similar set up that my father had in his office.
No wonder the dentist was a scary place then.
dental chair. Bad childhood memories

old nbc peacock - of course didn't see this at home because my parents didn't have a colored TV until the 80's!
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!!!
NBC peacock. I remember watching this when I was a kid. It was a signal that I was glad we had a color TV.
the NBC Peacock " In living color" I so remember this coming on just before a show that was in color.
When we finally got a color TV. Don't remember the year....was sometime in the 1960's

For those who weren't around all those years ago, here are a few facets of mid-20th century Americana that you may -or may not- be aware of. These are discussed to help you better understand the baby boom era and to make your trip down shopping mall memory lane seem a bit more vivid. TELEPHONE Until the late 1970s, it was -in essence- illegal to physically own your phone. All hardware was provided, and possessed, by the respective phone company (there was but a single, major one back then). Everyone was charged a "rental fee" on their monthly bill for their standard, wall or "Princess" model. The Princess Phone, marketed to the ladies, was introduced in 1959. On the left is the standard, rotary-dialing model. A more modern version, utilizing touch-tone telephony, is seen on the right. Photo from Wikipedia / Mcheath" The phone you would have rented at your local shopping mall "Ma Bell" store would have utilized analogue, "rotary-dialing". "Touch Tone" telephony did not appear until 1963, and did not become commonplace until the mid-1970s. Moreover, answering machines didn't come into prominence until the late 1970s. Oh yes, no one had a cellular phone until the mid-1980s, and these were rather large, clunky things...nothing like the super-miniaturized models of today. TELEVISION First off, back in the vacuum tube-based days of electronics, tvs, radios and record players did not come on instantly after the "on" button was clicked. There would be a pause of a minute or two, while the set "warmed up". The "instant on" feature was something to "ooo" and "ahh" over, when the first "solid-state" (transistorized) televisions became common in the early 1970s. By the mid-1970s, tube sets, and vacuum tube electronics in general, had become a thing of the past. A common fixture in the olden days shopping mall Safeway, Food Fair, or A & P supermarket, the self-service "Tube Tester". Back in the days, when the family set went on the blink, dad might open up the back and check for any tubes that looked too black. These would be removed and taken to the local grocery to analyse...and replace. Photo from www.tuberadios.com

Toni home perm smelled up the whole house!

Toni perm..I remember covering my face with a towel while mom squirted on the solution...some wold always run into the ear..it was cold...and smelled really really bad...sometimes I would use the perm on Mom's hair
Toni perm. When people did them at home. All that time spent having mom wind each section of hair into one of those uncomfortable rollers and the pulling when it clicked closed.
Toni perms. Took hours. What torture and it never lasted in my hair longer than a couple of days. I had the straightest, finest hair.
Toni perms...I never had to perm my naturally curly hair, but I remember my Mom buying and using Toni.

70s - 80s: Growing up in the 70s 80s you always had to wash your feet before you came in, as it was safe to play barefoot outside! And if not, then you got the orange badge of courage for a cut! Miss the feel of cool grass on my feet.
1960s - Barefoot all summer! You were even allowed to go into stores with bare feet. In California I never wore shoes all summer long. My feet were like hooves!
These were my feet. I can still hear my Mom hollering as my little brother and I would come in from outside...."Mike, take off your shoes! Con, take off your feet!"...I STILL like bare feet best.... = )

Ironing in front of the black and white - I remember Mother watching her favorite soap opera in front of the tv. They were only half hour shows then.
Ironing in front of the black and white. My mother had a little business on the side ironing other people's clothes.
Ironing and watching soaps or game shows. Nanny called it "pressing the clothes". :-) My mum used to do this to!
I remember as a little girl sitting next to my mother on the couch in the living room at 12:30 PM every day watching Search for Tomorrow (her favorite soap opera) on our small black and white screen. I was only 4 years old, but I was hooked, too!
Ironing and watching soaps-My mom would sprinkle the clothes with water from a 7-Up bottle with a cork/sprinkler top, then roll them up and place them in a clothes basket. I remember sitting at her feet while she pulled them out and ironed them one at at time. I didn't particularly like listening to the organ music that was the popular background music for soaps back then.
Ironing and watching soaps or game shows. Nanny called it "pressing the clothes". :-). I was pressing some clothes when I saw j. Harvey Oswald shot live on tv.
