Awakenings: Familiar sounds?…going, going, GONE!

Sounds of the past are not limited just to music, which allows history to speak to us other than only through the written word. We live in a highly technological age where many items of the past have or will soon become obsolete. Each is identifiable by its unique sound for we live in a world of cacophony. Unless you are in a location to visit a museum many of these will never be ‘heard’ by you or your kids depending upon your age. Enjoy the memories or listen to sounds you have never heard! Better still if you have a child or grandchild at home, invite them in for a history lesson!
