Photographs were fantastic. The formatting and presentation was annoying.

This was great - seems even then Wall Street was causing problems. :)

Horribly annoying. Looks like some guy just learned how to use Powerpoint.

"Photographs were fantastic. The formatting and presentation was annoying."

My opinion as well. They should have used a slide-show format, or better still, just displayed them all on a webpage with explanatory captions.

There was a photograph about 25 cent gas. Heck, I paid 19 cents a gallon in 1962.

And, you got three station attendants checking your oil, cleaning your windshield, and handing out your S&H Green stamps! And a fill-up got you dish towels, stemware, or a six-place stainless steel flatware setting.

Don’t forget the free maps, with or without a gas purchase.

In High School during the mid 50’s gas at the discount stations was also 19 cents a gallon. If one of the guys drove use girls home, we had to dig into our pockets to come up with 19 cents so he could buy a gallon of gas...We all lived miles from school and many took the bus with a student discount card....10 cents...

Nice great stuff, indeed rare pictures I love the nostalgia of the 1920s and 30s. So this year I created a 13 minute film called “Love at First Flight”on YouTube, maybe something you would enjoy.......

They showed a town labeled Cashmere, Oregon. Don’t think it ever existed. There is however a Cashmere in my state next door, Washington.

Thank you for posting, navysealdad! I loved the video! I was really amazed at the one picture of the early RV. I never knew something like that even existed.

Thanks for posting this. It was especially interesting seeing the USS Los Angeles (blimp) over Manhattan in 1928. Some of the skyscrapers were originally designed to dock them, though that obviously never really worked out.

I saw 19 cents a gallon gas in the early 1970s; usually it was in the mid-twenty cent range, though. Of course, I was making about $1.85/hour then.

Have you ever noticed that everyone in those days wore hats and almost no one does today. The hat business must have been good back then.

There is a site on the net named Shorpy that has thousands of photos between 50 to 150 years old. The photos are from the Library of Congress.See link below
