I'm way older than dirt - I remember everything everyone mentioned and the only thing I really miss is the full service gas sation! I detest pumping gas! Fun for nostalgia remembering all that...I can see my Grandma ironing w/the sad irons...they didn't get electricity until they moved to town in the late '40s..but I wouldn't go back for anything. So much work for men & women just to have food on the table every day - made them old before their time.

I used or saw all of those being used. My Mother used an iron that was put on the stove to curl my hair. It had two prongs.

I am older than Dirt.

Okay I remember a lot of these and I am only 45! And if I own several of the items including the ice trays and Studebaker does that make me older than dirt?

Not only do I remember the metal ice cube tray with a lever, but I still have two! My mom gave them to me when she got an automatic ice cube maker. Still use them - they are aluminum and never rust.

I'm not older than dirt, apparently.
