Remember when a Chevy truck only cost this much? Though in 1958 a person could purchase one at this local auto dealer for $1,599, to buy a similar model in good condition today would cost an average of $23,000.


Remember Carter Auto Parts? In the late 1950s, it was possible to purchase a variety of boats where Family Dollar now stands.


It has been quite a while since an ad like this printed in the newspaper. Though it is not technically illegal for cigarettes to be advertised in print, the heavy restrictions surrounding the content and placement often keep them out. Cigarette ads were banned from television and radio in 1971.


Here is a notice that appeared in the Altus Times-Democrat in the 1950s on the subject of bootleg control. At the time, the governor made it his mission to repeal prohibition in Oklahoma while giving each county the option remain dry. The term “bootleg control” was used to identify the fact that when prohibition was repealed, the alcohol enforcement agency of the time was going to root out bootleggers that continued to operate outside of state law.


Fairly soon, most Oklahomans will have new license plates on their vehicles, but remember when they looked like this in the late 1950s?
