This is a group where you can add at any time anything  you remember from "back then" in our society  that isn't the same now. It'll be fun to read how things have changed from a first hand experience of the posters here!

lol... my parents saved Playbills from shows they saw in the 40s and 50s - when Camels were advertised as a "healthier" cigarette.... and when I was a tot, dad used to make me bacon and bread fried in bacon fat for breakfast (yummy)... how little we knew... by his 70s dad was making baked chicken without the skin with spices on it and avoiding cheese!

I remember Dr. Kildare, and his competition Ben Casey quite well. Truman was president when I was hatched and then Ike seemed like a nice grandfatherly figure to a young kid. All of them in black and white and perhaps the shows supported by the ad, "DDT. It's good for you and good for me!"

i'm old enough to vaguely remember dr. kildare....and, frankly, something about him didn't feel "real" :-)

Tom, when I was a kid, a car was $2K, Kennedy was President and Richard Chamberlain was Dr. Kildare.
