Great game--but remember, I only made 50 cents an hour in 1954.

This was a surprise. I was only 3 that year, so I don't remember prices too well. I remember prices from the early 60s. If these prices are right--and I'm sure they are--prices didn't change much over the next 10 years. I remember my parents buying a nice house for $16,000 in the mid-60s. I remember paying around a dollar a pound for steak in the late 60s. I paid 21 cents a gallon for gas in 1969! Again, very interesting.
