I remember 10c Cokes or Nehi orange soda..but they were a lot smaller bottles...and heavy glass.....I think candy bars were 5c each when I was about 8 or 10 years old. A loaf of bread was like 12c. in high school, I bought 3 8oz cartons of milk...they were 2c for a 8oz carton. I liked milk......later developed lactose intolerance....so now only a tiny bit of milk with cereal or in coffee.....Then again, back in the 50s, the minimum wage was like 35c/hour.... I know it was 85c an hour in 1965 when I had a part time job in college.....And in the 50s, the milk man delivered milk to the milk box on the back steps.....but you had to go to the store to get bread. No frozen foods either...that was just coming along. Lots of canned veggies.....during the winter months. t.
