I can remember playing the music cylinders.i'm not that old but almost all of these are familiar to me (those that aren't are roller skate keys and butch wax, but i think i know what that is too, ah yes, we did have butch cuts but i never used wax on them - still don't... ).
we even had a wind up record player and 78s.
When I moved to Wyoming in the '70s, Casper had only one TV station. There was no cable TV. I lived at a site back in a canyon that did not get any TV reception. The site had one business telephone. None of the houses had any telephones. Cell phones were not in existence.We didn't live where there was a tv station until I was 6.
When I was growing up Home Ec was a required course for the girls but not for the boys.I got 4 but I imagine that has more to do with living in a tiny town that still has candy cigarettes, and wax coke bottle candy. There’s also a drive in movie theater or 2 left in the county and home economics is still offered as an elective at the local Highschool and I think it was required up until about 5-10 years ago I don’t remember exactly when they stopped requiring it.
... I haven't the foggiest notion what they are
