    OK, This ain’t genealogy, but fun for anyone who ever went to a drive-in movie in the 50s through the 70s. They were still using this at the Drive-in we went to in upstate New York until the 1980s!

    What seemingly silly things from our childhoods do we need to record for our children and theirs?

    No hot dogs were harmed in the filming of this advermercial. But they were delicious.

    Uneeda Biscuit Ad, 1912While doing some background research on my grandparents’ time working at the National Biscuit Company in the 1910s, I happened upon this advertisement.

    “The people of the United States are known all over the world as a Nation of dyspeptics….” (Uneeda Biscuit ad, 1912)

    Nothing could be truer, even today.

    For more on my grandmother’s work at National Biscuit, more specifically, knitting clothing for WWI Submariners, see Comforts Committee of the Navy League.)

    Can you say babushka? Sure you can.
