We all can agree that we live in a highly technological age. It has become so natural to us that it is hard to imagine how things were "back in time".
But all this technology that we benefit from in all aspects of life did not someday fall from the sky as it is! The concepts and devices have developed over time.
These days, it's hard to find some miraculous "technological" accessories. But imagine how people could have been amazed when they arrived on the market!
Machines and technologies full of promise, supposed to save us time and energy, have fun and help us in several areas.
We invite you to take a little trip down memory lane to rethink some of these inventions, which are the mothers of our modern gadgets.
So here is what “before” modernism looked like in XX pictures.
1. The rotary dial phone
It was not so long ago that it was enthroned in each of our homes! Who hasn't used a pen to compose in order to save their fingers?
2. Toll booths
You always had to have coins in the car.
4. The snow removal system
It was revolutionary back then!
5. A taxi meter
Before it was digital.
6. A system for the intensity of car headlights
A button on the ground, on which you had to press with your foot.
7. The Polaroid
And to think that decades later, millions of teenage girls will want a pastel-colored instant camera.
8. Luxury TV and cassette recorder
Not super compact!
9. A soft drink fridge
We would all like one at home!
10. A jukebox
The ultimate symbol of nostalgia!
11. A cash register
Slower than our current systems, but so beautiful!
12. The first lawn tractors
They looked cool!
13. A mini TV
The speaker is bigger than the screen.
14. A great hair dryer
In its lovely flowery case.
15. A 45 rpm support
Back in the days, playlists took up more space!
16. A thermostat
Do you remember them?
17. A transfer vending machine
When you had to take multiple subways!
18. Flash cubes
It took a few things to take a few pictures, formerly!
19. A modern razor
Be careful not to cut yourself when putting the blade.
20. An alarm clock
Your mom probably had the same.
21. A typewriter ribbon
An object that our children surely do not know.
22. A grinding wheel for sharpening knives
Long before the knife blocks!
23. The telephone operators
A rather forgotten profession.
24. The car radio
It was necessary to find the exact frequency to receive the sound well ...
25. A telephone booth
An object practically disappeared.
26. A manual mower
Generations of children have dreamed of a lawn tractor. Even more at this time.
27. Futuristic equipment for secretaries
28. A portable radio
To be able to listen to your favourite station everywhere!
29. An older pay phone
Another thing that required small change.
30. The currency exchange machine
Do you remember these?
31. The original video game
32. The video club
In a place that our youngest children will never have known!
How many of these do you remember?
