When was the last time you got milk delivered to your door or did loads of laundry by hand? Probably not in a long while, right?

Well, that's not really surprising because the world is constantly changing, and there are many objects we used and activities we did in the past that just don't exist anymore. If you were around in the 1950s, you'll recall how advances in science and technology, like the introduction of the television, started causing shifts in family and social dynamics.
