Emmanuel Labour, in the old days.
2 household Power points. 1 for wringer washing machine 2nd for radio in kitchen
Wood stove (used coke), with water jacket- kitchen was damn hot in summer.
Ice chest, outside loo, push mower.
When I first started work (1970) there were no computers, everything was hand written, so I was a mail boy for 2 floors (6th & 7th). Had to walk everywhere
Walked 1.3kms to school & my mate walked 3.2 kms (recently measured).
Would not think twice about walking to my cousins place in Glenroy, from Brunswick, at that time mid 60's, was only the second house in Glenroy.
Milk,coke & ice delivered by horse and cart
No vacuum cleaner, no dishwasher, no Tv, no electric blankets, no fridge, no atms (& the banks closed at 3pm).
There were plenty of jobs, if you wanted to be a manager, you needed to be a member of the Masonic lodge.
The car parks west of Moonee Valley racecourse were stables for the delivery horses and each stable had a massive peppercorn tree (massive to a 10yo anyway).
I've missed sh#t loads, but you get the picture
