Response to Re: Your ideal era?

 

I think we would have loved the 1920s Braden when radio was brand new and experimental and just about anybody could put on a radio station just by building a 10 watt transmitter and asking for a license. It was a time when technology was simple enough that you could build everything yourself- and not depend on multinational companies.

As for advance medical technology, I don't think it would be a factor for me so far since I've never had any medical problem that a visit to my local doc couldn't fix. But yes- I would miss the internet- no doubt about that. But not much else about today.

Since you seem to be a history buff- do you know about http://www.shorpy.com ?

Great place to study vintage cars, fashions and architecture.

I visit it nearly every day and post under the name "Zoreo". I've even submitted a couple of photos (old transmitters).
