Perfect!  I love old calendars - the Blacktone logo on a geniune Acme one is even better.

Acme Electronic Co. still in business when you were old enough to browse?

Acme was our family TV&appliance business.

We lived behind the store. I saved all this kind of stuff. My father started in business in 1938, fixing radios.

How cool is that!

Although I must confess that I thought this thread was about a 2018 calendar comprised of members' vintage appliances.

It might be from 1973, but the days/dates are the same for 2018!


Thanks posting Fred!

What a great, wonderfully preserved calendar! Thanks for sharing the backstory, as well. Vintage meets 2018.

Aside: My birthday was on a Friday that year.

I just want free calendars. My town usually sends one with recycle dates and when office is closed. My oil company usually sends me a big one to write stuff for the next year. I usually record daily local weather stats and compare past years. All I know, is it used to always just snow in the winter, and now it rains, freezes and more snow on ice to make it very slippery. Up down rinse and repeat is the weather norm now.
