How many of us remember them days where fast food was like almost nothing to pay for like these days it's over board. here's a list of what it cost for things back then from today. 14.500 to buy a house 3.261 average income 1,200 for a auto to 5,000 85 cents for a gal of milk 20 cents for a gal of gas 15 cents for bread 3-5 cents for a stamp 25 cents for a can of pork & beans 85 cents for a lb of steak That's just some of the GOOD things about the 50's & 60's back then we didn't have the threat of what we do today that's where back to the GOOD old days come from. The song's that we use to listen to was another thing that had us in good moods & enjoying life & living life on high we went to the movie house for less than 10$ for 4 people. How much of them days do you remember & what did you like about living in the 50's if you had the chance to go back to them days would you? I know I would in a heart beat.
Things to remember from the 50's and 60's with music from the good old days

For my 1 cent before I could buy a piece of bread. Now it's 2 pesos or 200 cents. In going to our capital city, we paid Php0.50 or 50 cents. Now it's 100 cents. Everything was cheap during that era of 50s & 60s.

I was born in the early 50's, I was too young to appreciate the 50's, but I surely loved the life in the 60's.

@sugartoes I was born in 1951, the war ended from only 5 years, there was a lot of destruction in my native city, I can still remember all the buildings taken down by the bombs. Anyway, we were happy.

@sugartoes I wish I could have a time machine to go back and see what it was like. Going and living in different eras would be so awesome. Really interests me learning about the differences between all eras. Really cool.

Yeah crazy how things have spiked and they wonder why there is so many homeless. Its OK, we will just hide them and pretend there is no problem and our way of life is affordable now for everyone because capitalism can do no wrong.

@JohnRoberts that's when things STARTED getting out of control with everything & just went from there to where we are today no control, no justice, just study price gouging, now look where we are today it's crazy.
