Sometimes pictures are worth more than a thousand words. Today’s 365 story includes ten images that bring back memories of growing up during the 1960s. We invite you to enjoy this visual trip down memory lane. Share the photos, your memories, and a good chuckle with friends today. We’d love to read your comments on Facebook or through an email.


A special thanks to Bill Ziemba for forwarding these photos to us.

To commemorate the City of Troy’s 60th Anniversary in 2015, we will publish a different story each day that highlights a person, discovery, or event that occurred locally, regionally, nationally, or even globally between 1955 and 2015 and that helped shape our lives and our community. We will try to post stories on important anniversary dates, but we also realize that dates are less critical than content and context. We will include the facts related to controversial stories, allowing our readers to form their own opinions. We invite you to read and comment on the stories. Your suggestions for topics are also welcome and can be posted on our Facebook page, You can also email stories or ideas to the 365 Story Editor at
