Could You Pass A 1954 Home Economics Class?

This test was so fun, esp. since this was my era.  The photos - which are a hoot and more fun even than the quiz - brought back many memories.  Aprons! LOL Smiley Happy

 

Have fun!

I think our priorities have changed since the 1950s, never to return.  We could use a few of those niceties today.

No.  But then again, could any of the women pictured change the oil and/or battery in a Dodge Ram pickup truck?  I can!

My how things have changed!  

 

The question about washing hair seemed like a trick question. I answered once a week ,but the correct answer was twice a month, but sooner if it gets dirty.  What???
