I was born in 1947 and remember all of it (and much more).
makes me think ...would you keep the berlin wall up today ???
honestly I don't know much about the history on that , I have just heard recently that Germany is a mess
I don't recall butch wax, or having a phone number with a word prefix. Still, I'm at least as old as dirt.
I remember many of those things.
No party lines or Howdy Doody. We had dial phones and Bozo the Clown.
Newsreels were before my time but I do remember these playing before the movie began. Especially at drive-ins.
