Can You Name These 1950s School Supplies?

Advertisement

The world has changed a great deal since the 1950s. Technology has advanced again and again. Machines have gotten smaller, then bigger, then smaller. Our tech is wearable, wireless, and integrated into our daily lives. Most people in their early forties and younger can barely remember (if they can at all) what it’s like to live in a world without immediate information and simple gadgets that perform a million tasks. Can you imagine going to school without modern tech? Maybe you can. Maybe you were there. How many of these old-school school supplies do you recognize? Do these images conjure up keen memories of shopping at Sears in September, or are you totally lost? Give it your best guess. If you’re a baby boomer, we bet you’ll nail this thing. Pass this quiz along to a younger friend and see if they make the grade!
