Something i forgot to mention about my Great-Uncle's badge, it was from his days driving in Crowland town, which no longer exists.....the town of Crowland was absorbed into Welland, the year I was born!

Having watched old movies or seen old photos, I knew there was something on a taxi driver's cap, but never knew what that was. Thanks to you, now I know. Them were the days when people were professional and took their jobs seriously.

We had a gas station that still did that! But that station finally closed down. I think the owner retired. I remember how that used to be. You would drive up over that hose that would "ring" to let someone know you were there.

I don't know if this was just in So. California but we had a fast food place called PUP-N-TACO. They sold hot dogs, tacos and other items.

Also, I miss Taco Bell's Bell Beefers. Those were so damn good. If they still sold them, I'd be at Taco Bell at least once a week for those. I don't care much for fast food but that is something I really enjoyed.

Default MILK DELIVERY.....They used to take it to your door!!!

When I was a kid (60s/early 70s), milk was still delivered in this city by horse-drawn milk wagon!! Delivered right to your door! In summer, you had the bottles sweating on the porch; in winter, the bottles would freeze and the cap would be forced out of the bottle top and sit on top of a column of ice made from the frozen milk. I spent 2 days looking for a pic of one of the old carts online and found only older models, but, if you look at the van in the milkman pic, just imagine a horse where the engine is, and you'd have a pretty good idea what they looked like!

I remember the milkman coming to our door. I also remember having to "write a note to the milkman". I would add my own goodies such as chocolate milk. Ahhhh memories.

Hey Mikey, I just seen on the History Channel a shoe x-ray device that was used in shoe stores so customers could see their feet x-rayed. It was used by salesman to get the exact measurements of the customers feet. Which was futile since they could easily have used the standard foot measure stick. Anyways check out this website showing this monsterous device that was later discovered to have given off radiation in such high doses that it was
20 times the radiation than a standard chest x-ray...

Wowwwwww that is insane!!! Well; this is one time you really scooped me

I never added my own note to the milkman, but i saw Mom do it now and then...............he was my Dad's cousin, actually, when his horse died, he got a truck, but, it wasnt the same for him without the hayburner, and when they offered early retirement, he took it.

Default Did anyone have this toy?

"What walks down stairs, alone or in pairs,
And makes a slinkity sound?
A spring, a spring, a marvelous thing,
Everyone knows it's Slinky?"

"It's Slinky! It's Slinky!
For fun it's a wonderful toy,
It's fun for a girl and a boy!"

I had the "Slinky" toy when I was a kid but I could never get it to go right no matter how hard I tried.

I DID I DID!!!!!! *irene raising her hand* But we didn't have stairs in my house so it made the toy not as fun as I thought it would be. I had to make my own steps with our encyclopedias.

Meet Millie
No School Today (with Big Jon & Sparkie)
The Shadow (with Orson Welles)
Suspense (with Cary Grant)
