Schooll Supplies

Back to School Supplies – 1964 – Going through the papers from the 60’s I came across a Jupiter ad for back to school supplies and the prices caught my eye….. For 7 cents you could buy your choice of  pencils, erasers, rulers or protractors …. A cartridge ink per was only 68 cents (regular $1.49) …. A Webster’s dictionary – 43 cents….. 300 sheets of notebook paper – 27 cents ….. the big box, 64 crayons – 74 cents ….. a Remington Typewriter - $38.66 and 275 sheets of typing paper only 67 cents….. I’m not sure kids today would know what to do with a manual typewriter and a protractor…. I also remember when I was in the 4th grade I got my first cartridge ink pen --- you could by additional cartridges in a box of five for about 20 cents.
