My first flight was at the age of 12-13. Mom and I flew cross-country to visit my brother and his family. We flew on a DC-6. It had propellers. It took us 25 hours from Boston to Sacramento because we stopped everywhere there was an airport along the way. I wore a sport coat with a shirt and tie for the trip.Airplanes were not flying cattle cars. There was leg room, people dressed well to travel, and getting there was half the pleasure.
Probably has a needle threader.Remember when planes gave you little trinkets? I still have a tiny 'emergency sewing kit' with an Air Canada logo on the bag, about the same size as a match folder.
Needles, various coloured threads. Have to go and check it see what else is in it. Long time since I've looked at it.
and of course, now I have to rememver where it is! Was always in my purse, but now....
I miss those.Restaurants that offered interesting complimentary bread baskets and relish trays.

We had one old German restaurant that offered a huge relish tray.
The huge tray was brought to each table for people to make their selections.
This note from the owner, Mrs. Mirbach, appeared on the bottom of each menu.
Please help yourself to all you want on the Salad Tray, BUT Please Do Not Waste.
