I grew up in the Bronx in the 50's. We used to get egg creams all the time. One time while travelling through the south in the 50's, we stopped at a soda fountain and ordered egg creams. The waitress brought us a hard-boiled egg in a plate of sour cream.

My family has been laughing at that for over 50 years.

I remember gas at 0.19 and going to a gas station and asking for "a dollars worth". Remember nik-l-nips and dots on paper. I remember playing all types of sidewalk games such as skelly, three-box-baseball, ring-alevio and playing stickball in the street where three sewers was a home run and we had to hide the sticks when the police came by.
