Quaint technology thread!


BETAMAX!!!



Halogen lights to keep the sign lit at night!!!!



Trash cans were once not a thing of the past! Especially if you're told to bring it home with you!!



Head on a platter, colorized -- priceless!!



Picket signs - quaint and may never go out of style!!!



Light-up display bust, oh yeah!!!!!

1. Sad for Sony. Betamax was superior to VHS.
In fact Beta was used professionally for years after VHS took over the consumer market.

11. And I miss Isaac Asimov!
As my late grandmother called him "That great Russian writer: ee-ZAK Ah-ZEE-moff". I took me years to discover we were reading the same science fiction novels, though she read them in Russian.

12. We had one of those in my house on a PARTY LINE.
And they were seriously heavy. You could throw your back out picking that thing up to clean under it.
