Long Lost But Fun To Remember

Here's a picture of my dear old Dad. I thought this photo taken in the 1950's typifies what I am talking about here.
I found a list of things today's children will never know. Here are a few that take me back. Not that they necessarily should come back, but it shows how far we've come!
1. Roller skate keys.
2. Slide rule.
3. TV with a rotary dial.
4. Typewriters
5. Putting film into a camera.
6. Reading an encyclopedia.
7. Vinyl records
8. Pay phones
9. Hearing static while dialing to the next radio station.
10. Searching for a book in the library using a card catalog.
It makes me wonder what the next 40 years will bring.
