I like the Kung Fu poster hanging out in the background! (along with the cards. '74?)

Yes. Topps released the Kung Fu card set in 1973 so it had to be right about that time.

I remember Gold Rush gum.  I didn't like it. Gold Rush was big around 1974, so you have the right time frame.

I wish I could go back in time, and relive my childhood Hallowe'en moments. The vintage commercials evoke so many memories.

I don't need any more than photos like these to feel incredible nostalgia.





Those are like variety store candy counters on steroids! I don't know how I would have reacted as an eight year old, but I'm drooling on my shirt right today.
