I think that children that were born in the 1980's and onward...if they are able to see photos of vintage technology, they might say, "How did you ever survive without computers, colour TV, etc.?" If someone asks me this question I will respond with, "We just did...that is all we had, and it did us just fine." (with a smile, of course). :)
I found some photos that I wanted to share with you all to see what you think and/or remember.
This first photo is of a 1930's stove with a side hot water well. I love the look of this stove, but am not clear on the hot water well aspect, so if any of you are, please feel free to share your knowledge, I would very much appreciate it.
