I must have too much time on my hands.
Vicki and I were again reminiscing about things you rarely see in everyday use these days.
Typewriters, house radios, black and white TVs, attendants selling petrol at servos, conductors on buses.
Then of course motoring came to the fore and these were some of the things we came up with: door weathershields, windscreen sun visors, hubcaps and whitewall tyres, press button car radios, power aerials and foot operated high beam dipper switches almost all gone.
Try to buy a new car with a CD player. Only very few carry this option.
In-car tape players have been and gone.
Manual gearboxes are heading down the road to oblivion.
Ash trays thankfully are dead and buried as are in-car cigarette lighters.
When next driving see how many cars you can spot with some of these items. My guess is very few.
It's amazing these types of things just slip away and you don't even notice. Some to be missed some not.
No doubt you can think of others.
