Children often look at us as if we are from a different planet when we try to tell them about gadgets we used to use. What are some items that the new generation would not have seen before?

At my first job, the lady who did all the money used an ''adding machine'', that you would pull down a handle to give you the total!!!
I guess calculators were not on the market? Of course that was over 40 years ago.
Also every home would have 'carpet sweeper'', a little box, with wheels on the underneath, that had also bristles and you could get up crumbs, or the like.
It would have a long handle, to move around the room.
We have one of those adding machines in our time capsule. The boys took it apart recently and I couldn't believe what is below the hood!
I KNOW!!! an amazing machine indeed :)

Music is now getting smaller and smaller from cassettes to discs to mp3 players, I guess newer gen has not seen the huge gramophone records and the mega size polyvinyl discs.
Black and White televisions.
There are a few items that children won't find very common: typewriter, rotary telephone, Baghdad battery, the Turk (chess player machine), ...
Cassette players, video recorders and players that had the large tapes and also telex and electric typewriters.
Record players. Cassette players and VCRs.
Definitely typewriters and cassette walkman. Oh, and record players too.
