    Looks great to me. I see a lot of oil
    lamps? When did the UK get electrified?
    I’d do it if I didn’t have to drop
    a deuce in a bucket every day. What does
    he do with that shit anyway?

    My mom lived the 40s (and 20s, and 30s....) and never expressed any great desire to go back. Her house did not get electricity until she was ~ 12. They had a woodstove in the kitchen (only heat). One day, the pump by the sink was "stiff"....then the snake came out of it [laugh]. Then, she joined the Army, for WWII. She was not against modern conveniences, though the 32,000 TV channels was a bit much for her (though it did allow for Bonanza to be readily available).

    I have kerosene lamps....and I'm glad that they're a backup!

    My mom was born in 22. She told me
    one day after the family saved up for
    a long time they got a kerosene insert
    for the cook stove. She now thought
    her family was rich no more hauling
    in wood to kindle the stove for diner.
    One match and instant heat. Must have
    been like when we first got a microwave?

    Mom worked for Raytheon in 41 helping
    the war effort. She built instrumentation
    for aircraft. She would tell me how all the
    “Girls” would work very meticulously
    because the planes depended on these
    instruments and someone could get hurt if
    they were not built exactly as they should be.

    Or color TV. My first was 1977. It was probably an 11". Cable came in 85 or 86.

    So is the chamber pot in the bedroom for decoration or for use? I can understand the allure of living in simpler times but... there are limits.

    Life was tougher in the 1940s, war and all, so people aged faster. [smile]

    I'd rather do 1960s. Love the cars, and basically everyone had plumbing and electricity, too.

    My grandmother lived the 1940s until the 70s, toughest woman I have ever met! She lived through two World Wars and the Great Depression and never heard her complain about anything.... even having lost everything she owned in the Worcester Tornado in '52! They don't make them like that anymore

    By the late 1940's / early 50's, they had everything they needed to be very comfy. Heck, they even had corvettes by then.

    I could never go back to the 40's if it meant I had to tuck in a sweater (jumper).

    P'shaw!

    there are some women who enjoy that type of fetish. It is usually centered more around a 1955 sort of lifestyle though. Involves her being very submissive to her husband/mate

    Yup. That was nice. Even nicer when I got back from overseas. Seemed like all of the girls wanted to do their part in welcoming us home. All of them. Over and over and over.

    Yea, late 60's into the 80's... I asked my MD why all the ads on TV were talking about baby boomers and Hep C. He looked at me and smiled and said, "It's sexually transmitted." Ahhhh, now I understand.
