If you grew up in the ’40s, ’50s or ’60s, then you probably recognize that things have changed quite a bit since then. Gone are the days of the skate key and the duck and cover drill. While somethings from our childhood do remain relevant in our culture to this day (like the Beatles) there are some things that have disappeared to the point that our kids and grandkids won’t even know what we’re talking about!
1. Technology That Couldn’t Fit In Your Pocket
Whether it’s how we keep in contact with each other or how we listen to music, there’s no doubt that the biggest changes have occurred in technology. We went from rotary phones to push button phones, to phones with no physical buttons at all! The idea of sitting around a radio listening to your favorite program or waiting for your favorite song to come on probably seems ludicrous to today’s generation. In fact, the way we do homework has changed! You probably won’t see many new editions of encyclopedias being published in the distant future.
