Prior to the convenience stores there use to be 'ice houses'. Where you could buy a few groceries, beer, soft drinks, and (of course ice). Also folks could sit and drink. Maybe a pin ball machine and juke box were in place.

    I would have to say Pay Telephones...... ;)

    They used to be a part of the environment no matter where you were...... :*

    I remember the airports always had whole areas with nothing but pay phones.....last time I was at Portland, OR International Airport I might have counted ten of them throughout
    the facility........sigh... "Kirk to Enterprise" rules today.....lol.... walk down a busy city street and no one makes eye contact....all in their own little world with that phone.... :D

    Today it is rare to see them......and when you do, they rarely work....lol....usually broken from vandalism....says a LOT about society today me thinks.... :p

    Baseball cards with the flat bubble gum. A lot of good cards were lost when boys clothes pinned them to their bicycle spokes. ( imitated motorcycle sounds) also used balloons for better effect. :o
