So How Much Did It Cost?
A while back, I wrote a post about what things cost back in 1950.
I mainly wanted to compare prices back then to current prices today.
I grew up in the 1960s listening to The Beatles, eating TV dinners in front of the “black and white” television set, watching I Love Lucy, and enjoying life without internet access and cell phone technology.
