Ephemera – Dallas Morning News 11/23/63

Cleaning out a garage can be a treasure hunt. I came across a copy of the 11/23/63 Dallas Morning News which was all about Kennedy. It might suprisee you that it wasn’t the items about that fateful day that interested me, it was the details of everyday life that caught my eye.

In the entertainment section was a list of all the drive-ins. They were everywhere. I even grew up next door to the HI Vue which was on S Beckley in those days, now I35.

There must have been 15 ads for television sets as we were at the tail end of TV’s golden age and everyone was glued to the set every night. Car prices were also a hoot.

The civil rights act was in the future and in ’63 you could specify that a “colored” person was wanted for a job and there was a separate section for “colored’ in the real estate ads.
