    Nice infographic. Seems as if they had more fun then than they are having now. What I can gather from the faces of the children is that they seem a little unhappy camping, perhaps they are missing their video games.

      They probably had much more fun back then as life was much more slow paced. You’re probably right about sad looking kid and video games :)

      Welcome to my blog Adam! Gas prices have increased since 1960 like crazy. Only thing we can be happy about is the MPG in new vehicles.
