Little Grey Bungalow
Funny! And this certainly IS the "talking age". When I was little - not yet 10, probably - I wanted to be a telephone operator when I grew up. My dad, who at that time was still with the phone company, ruffled my hair and told me that when I grew up they probably wouldn't even HAVE operators. That was in the late 40s. (I was born in '42.)
Interesting: the machine age 30s, in the midst of world wide depression, along come new style glamour and the futurists both positive and downright scary. I wonder what they'd make of us.
P.S. to Lady Anne: I wanted to be a milliner and/or costumer. My grandfather said women don't wear hats any more, and my mother had fits over 'theatre people'.
I wonder what jobs we take for granted today will no longer exist by 2031?
