January 1949

January 1949

My line of work (cable TV installer) allows me to be in a lot of different houses… and you never know what you’ll come across. Sometimes, it’s stuff you don’t want to find and sometimes, like today, I stumble upon things like this. I have no doubt this calendar has been hanging in this basement since 1949. It’s things like this that make emphasize how much things have changed over the years. Two point of interest on this calendar are the phrase “Air & Steamship Tickets” and… check out that phone number, it’s only 3 numbers!!!
