My parents owned a store and needed gas for deliveries, and the diner next door to our store needed sugar, my father would trade for the gas in exchange for the sugar coupons. I remember down by the railroad crossing...(they use to lower and raise the gate by hand) in the crossing guard shack, he had a coal fired store......he would always have some potatoes sitting on top of the coal....they were black and the inside were soft and hot....he would give my brother and I one each, and that would be our dinner...we would come home face all black and our clothes were black from the coals.
We grew our own vegetables in our victory garden, had some chickens and we survived those hard years.....I also remember having shoes that had cardboard soles....we only wore them when it was dry out cause our regular shoes were so beaten up and my mom would line the soles with newspaper.....there was no leather during the war. We had to walk a mile and a half with my mother from the place of business to where we lived each and every day...in the rain and snow...no rubber for tires also.
Life was hard, but I wouldn't trade those memories for what we have today....even with all the modern tech.....we learned to be humble, save, and respect each other.

How about a truck with the starter button the floor, an old Buick, straight 8 metal sun visor,ignition switch that would work without key unless you turned it to lock.Prism on the metal dash board to see traffic lights with that big metal visor up there. Fender skirts,and black"Port-a-walls" to make your old Wide white wall tires look like the new skinny white walls. Or the Caddilac with the twin scoops on the rear fenders for the air conditioner.Big old Schwin bike with Spring front suspension,& headlight in fake gas tank.
Older than Dirt & proud of it.

I had one of those Schwins.....remember the one cell d battery that would fit between the spokes?......remember the baseball card you clipped with a clothes pin to make that exhaust sound?....remember the tassle that was attached to the handle grip?....yes it goes on and on.
Did anyone make a "scooter" with a box, one roller skate taken apart and nailed to a board with 2 sticks for handle bars?.....forgot, 2 tin cans nailed to the front for head lights.

Reading this from my last post I just realized I've got ya all beat. I've been playing around in the desert all my life. Much longer than Moses. Like there was Buzz Cory and the Space Patrol, the Shadow, Tom Swift and his mechanical robot, the Looooone Ranger and it was all on radio. yuk yuk yuk ytuk

From the past Brace B eemer as the Lone Ranger.
Look to the future, Johhny Depp as Tonto.

At least when we were kids there were cartoons on TV our parents could watch. Today there isn't anything on TV to watch.

"Church key to open a beer then pull tab can. Man.. a two hole can sure went down smooth.." In the mid to late 60's, the pull tab actually came off with a curved bit of the aluminum top attached. We called that (while it was still attached to your finger) an Auburn class ring with the optional nose picker.

How about getting a four pack of Winstons with your meal on an airplane? Come to think of it, how about getting any meal on an airplane?

Some things that may have been unique to our area. The Fuller Brush salesman and the Watkins man who delivered things like vanilla and other baking and cleaning things. The Hall's bakery truck that used to deliver chocolate chip cookies from a little yellow truck like the ones that were used to deliver milk. I can remember putting a card in the front window with a letter on it so that the dry cleaners would stop to pick up your dry cleaning.

Other things that I remember like the drive from Buffalo to Charlotte used to take two days instead of the 10 or so hours it takes today. Do you remember cruising around in a car and stopping to get a bucks worth of gas? How about "Fill 'er up and check the oil."

I am confused about your statement about movie rating system pre-dating television, because 90% of the movies were porn.

I believe the movie rating system began in the late 50's or early 60's and there have been revisions from time to time. What movies, produced by the main stream studios, do you classify as porn that were produced in the 40's thru the 60's?

Remember television started immediately after WWII in the major markets and was in the smaller markets before 1950.

Dont forget the Motion Picture Production Code (Hays Code) that started it all in 1930. Movies were so bad, the States and Federal governments were developing censorship bills to limit what could be in movies.

Motion Picture Association of America film rating system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Motion Picture Production Code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




Surprises me more people dont know this.
