I thought I had more of these, but I can't think right now. Do any of you other "Mature Adults" know of any thing that they had 40 years ago that is gone now?
It was nearly 1980 by the time I was old enough to actually remember stuff properly.
>> 1 = A phone with a dial, not buttons.
Most phones were already touch button ones, but there was a broken rotary phone in gramp's attic.
>> 2 = A black and white TV.
A (distant) relative had one. And on New Years' the old folks would keep talking about these morally-corrupting new-fangled colour tee vees >__>
>> 3 = A car without power steering.
Dad's first two cars.
>> 4 = A 45 rpm record.
Not sure. Dad had a bunch of LPs beside the hifi but I don't know whether those were 45 rpm ones or not.
>> 5 = A needle for a turntable.
One of my chores was to (carefully) wipe the furniture, and I remember handling those.
>> 6 = Ever been to a double feature movie. (that's two movies for the price of one)
>> 7 = Ever been to a record store where you can play the record before you buy it.
