Toni home perm smelled up the whole house!
60 S, Childhood Memories, 1970 S, Toni Perms, Memory Lane, Baby Boomer, Hair, 80 S
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.
The Toni Home Perm was a torture box for little girls. I remember my mother gave me a Toni perm one year just before school pictures were taken - I have proof of my "afro" hairdo because my hair was nothing but a frizz ball the next day - and boy did they stink!!!
Toni home perm stunk up the whole house. Every year when school started M Mom would have a lady cut my hair and I got a toni perm. BL
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 perms...I had MANY of these! OMG - I used to stare at the pics on the box while my mom permed my hair!!

Vintage shoe shine box.

Shoe shine box. When I was a kid in Brooklyn, this is how I earned money. I stood in front of a bookie shop and shined shoes of those waiting for their horse to come in. They tipped very well.

Ironing in front of the black and white
Life In The 60S, Mother, Life In The 50S, Soap Opera, Living Room, Boomer, 1950S Housewife, Watching Soap
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!
Can you imagine ironing almost everything? Things were either wool or cotton which wrinkles badly and clothes were dried outside on the clothesline (no wrinkle-release cycles back then). And most homes had no central air conditioning; so add the heat from the iron to already hot air!
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.
When I got home from school my mom would be ironing in the living room while watching "The Guiding Light" soap opera on tv....I wanted to watch Tom and Jerry.,,sheesh :)
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 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.
Ironing in front of the black and white, watching soap operas..."These are the days of our lives."
Ironing in front of the black and white probably watching her soap opera As The World Turns
Ironing in front of the television. That could be my own mother. Vivid memory like this.

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!
70s - 80s: Growing up in the 70s 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.

I remember the ugly gym suits we had to wear in gym class. They snapped up the front. During the 60's & 70's in Jr. High and High School. Royal blue in Jr. High & White in High School. The white ones were so hard to keep clean.
PhysEd class in high school: we all had to wear these royal blue gym suits (with out names on the back in big white letters), and they'd be clean, by gum!

Remember when people actually measured your shoe size for you?
Shoe Sizer, Childhood Memories, Buying Shoes, Baby Boomer
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!
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!)
These were used when you used to buy shoes from sales clerks who measured your shoe size (and width) and then went to the stock room to get the shoes you wanted to try on. Hannahs shoe store
Something that should make a comeback: measuring your foot at the shoe store and buying shoes that actually fit!
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
