Modern Publicity 1957-58 Part 2

July 21, 2014

Welcome back from the weekend and a happy Monday to one and all. Did you know that it was 45 years ago (yesterday), Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin left their footprints on history. I was only a toddler at the time so don’t remember it but hey …. what a feat ! Here’s my tribute.

    Re: typewriters… I remember learning how to type on those things, we had to build up our pinky muscles! What a mess it was when one had to correct a mistake(s). I for one, am glad they’re gone!
