Cool Website – Vintage Technology


Vintage Technology – is a site that seeks to showcase the evolution of devices in our lives through the archiving of old advertisements from the 1950s.”…

A fun component of the site is a game called “hit or miss” in which the reader has to determine whether a product survived the marketplace or fell into the dustbin of history. (A binocular radio from 1961? Apparently, a hit. A mushroom iron from 1951? It’s a miss.) The site has many different links and interesting paths to the history of technology, although it has a definite British tone that indicates the site’s origins.
