1950 here. I remember being able to go trick or treating on Halloween night with just friends. We'd be out and about for hours, it seemed. And parents didn't hold our hands and tag along. They were too busy at home handing out candy.
I was fortunate in that my parents became members of the new community pool in 1958. Me and my friends would literally get to the pool at 10:00 am for swim team practice and stay and swim all day till we decided to wander home around 3 or so. Many times, we'd head back over to the pool after dinner.

The simple life....no stress, no worries, no trying to fit in.
