RE: New Residence Hall
I would have LOVED to have those kinds of amenities at my dorms back in the 1960s. All we had was a TV room in the basement and a parlor type entrance room at the front door. The wall mounted telephones on the halls were cut off at 10:00 at night. Some residents got upset when the cigarette machine in the TV room was raised from 30 cents a pack to 35 cents with many swearing that they would quit if it went up any more.
BTW, At that time in B'ham, a "convenience store" at 4th Ave south and 26 street sold individual cigarettes for a dime each from an open pack.
