    I've used a few when growing up and we would visit relatives down South! I'm sure glad those days are over...

    Amazing thinking I am only 31, and the technology we have today, yet I still remember most of the things on this thread....

    Now that looks just like the Xilinhot Bus Station toilet/washrooms.

    I just spent a holiday in a grasslands village staying with friends, it's just like that there. They have electricity sometimes when they need it, which comes from a generator and the water comes from a well. Coal, wood or dried sheep manure for cooking and heatng in the winter.

    Growing up we had one of those (and an outdoor shower made from wooden pallets and rubber mats from a printing press) until I was in middle school (late 80s).

    Morse code machine/telegraph

    We didn't have a phone until I was in 4th or 5th grade, before that we had an intercom between our house and my uncles (1/8th of a mile away) and used Morse code on it.

    I'd honestly never seen a telegraph machine before, so thanks for the ID. ;)

    I feel that way at times also. It seems like you end up leaving home with too much stuff to carry!

    Washboards and Fels Naphtha soap worked pretty well.

    I have a wool doublet (vest) that I wear a bit and I have been looking for a washboard so I can clean it by hand.

    Oddly enough, I had one of these hanging in the kitchen as a child. No.. I'm old but not that old. My father loved antiques and wired one of his purchases into the bell system. You could not make a call on it but you could answer a call.
    Our real phone looked very similar to this model and it set on a shelf in the hall. You had to stand there to talk.

    I remember when I used to have 10-15 friends tops and we'd do stuff outside daily...now I have 500 on Facebook and indoors mostly... yep the future sure is friendly. Human interaction > fb anytime. I guess people forgot how to talk to each other.
