Pushing the button at the cross-walk. Yes.
The ice cream man driving down the street. Yes, but not where we lived. At one of my grandmothers' houses, though.
Complete meals at dinner time...protein, carb, and vegetable. Example: chops, mashed potatoes, gravy, and peas. Yes.
Freshly squeezed orange juice. Yes.
Fancy grapefruit halves. Yes, my grandmother 'fancied them up' when we spent the night. Even a cherry on top.
Play clothes vs. school clothes. Yes.
Dog tack being leather. Yes.
Tupperware. Yes, the plain kind, not like now.
Colorful metal cups. Yes.
Flour Sifters. Yes. I have a couple of old ones. My grandmother's was large, white on the outside, with red strawberries all over it. Wish that I had it.
Carpet Sweepers. Yes. Again, at one of my grandmother's house. I have one now, but nowhere to use it yet.
Wearing dresses to school. Yes. Dress code back then.
Polishing your shoes. Yes.
Home perms. Yes.
Curlers at night. Yes.
Making ice cream with a hand-turn ice cream maker. Yes, peach specifically. My grandfather's favorite. The youngest children turned it first, so that when it got more difficult to turn there were older children and adults left to turn it.
Escalators at department stores. Yes. None here, though!
Jelly containers that are drinking glasses afterwards. Yes.
Jars of honey with the comb inside. Yes.
Small ash collectors. (handle, button to push which opens it.) Yes, my grandmother's was copper with a wooden handle.
Candy dishes on living room tables. Yes.
Stoves with griddles on the top. Yes.
Lights overhead with pull chains to turn them on and off. Yes.
Big black phones. Yes.
Cutting boards that pull out of the kitchen counter. Yes.
Yellow Cabs. Yes. I understand that they are almost a thing of the past now, with companies like Uber.
'Newsies' that stand on the corners and run newspapers over to cars. Yes. My Dh was one as a kid. He didn't have to, but wanted to, and was good at it. I doubt that they have had them for a long time, even before newspapers started to go the way of the dodo bird with the internet. Thankfully, they aren't completely extinct, or else there would be nothing to put in the bottom of the chicks' cage!
