Phriday Phun

What Every Modern Homemaker Dreamed of Owning!

 Doesn't it make you wonder what future generations will think about our 'antiquated' technology???
(We've gone to San Francisco to attend an open house for Tyler & Emily's wedding, and to celebrate our anniversary.  Be back in a week.)

The scary thing is that I can remember using similar machines.

we had one of these when i was a child, but it did not go all the way to the floor like this, it had 4 legs. i hated using it because i was afraid my fingers would get caught since they caught and mashed my grandmothers fingers. it is phun. and it looks like ginny had a mystery question on one of these today

Where in the world did you find this? My first washing machine was just like this. (Am I showing my age?)

Can you imagine that most of the people still living right now have never seen one of these in use? That makes me feel really, really old. LOL.

I love the lighting and tone. Great shot, Karen.

This if Phun! It is fascinating to think what people will think about things like the I-phone 50 years from now. Have a great time in one of my favorite cities in the world.

We had one of these growing up, brings back memories! Hope you have a great trip and visit!

I showed my kids a pay-phone once, they didn't get it! I love to watch movies with my children. Sometimes, I will pick out movies from my childhood years and I always hear "That movies has the cheesest special effects!" Just think, I could be using a typewriter and snail mail now. Nice picture, Karen.

I remember them well. They seem to be normal to me, but the shops don't have them anymore, only museums. Such is life!

I don't know how I would live without modern technology

Stacey Dawn said...

I wasn't sure what that was at first. I had to read the comments! lol! I was playing a sound bingo game with kids once and when the typewriter sound came on none of them knew what it was. Times change!

Oh yeah. My dad had one in our garage that he used for "grease rags". That was back in the 50's. I was so attracted to those rollers. They were a BIG no no in the day. This is a great photo Karen, you sparked many memories here.
