passbook savings accounts
note the instruction: "always bring your book with you"
you brought the book in then the teller went to her calculator and marked the deposit or withdrawal and the balance in pen

My mom had one in the 50's for
Xmas. Her employer deducted $2
a week and deposited it. She had
$100 at the end of the year. Same
as $930 today.

Remember when we called TV 'the tube'?
I heard it the other day and realized
it's been decades since I heard it.
Last CRT TV I had was a 36" Panasonic
I paid too much for in 2004. Weighed
well over 100 pounds. It's still in the
garage, you have to pay somebody
to haul it away, landfills won't take
them. I quit watching it in 2007
when I got the flatscreen.


Put that on Craigslist and someone will pick it up for free.

There is a collectors market for vintage video games and VHS tapes, and those people like CRT.

How old is that? I've never seen a handwritten bank book before.

1953



my parents had something similar - when I was old enough to have an account there was still a book but it was fed into a machine that recorded the transactions

I had one until the mid-1970s. They became pretty much useless when ATMs were invented - what were you supposed to do; whenever you wanted to withdraw or deposit money, stick your bankbook into a slot the way somebody "punches into work" every day with a timecard?

Polaroid instant cameras

There used to be a Family Video store near me. I could rent DVD's or Blu-Rays for 50 cents or $1. They even had a porn section. They had a video game section too, but that was for gamers who had money. With 20 years of cable TV, I've never rented one movie; but I've rented a couple on iTunes this year.

I'm wondering if the cable companies are gonna go poof when tens of millions of customers cut the cord imminently. What do we watch when the cable company says "no more TV, and internet is going to $200 a month."?

Yup. We had handwritten checks
and handwritten bankbooks.
I cashed my paychecks at the
local grocery store, everybody
did. Friday was a big day for
them.
