[R1] Some bars in New Orleans still have cigarette vending machines, a blast from the past for sure. Avenue Pub on St Charles Ave still has them.

I've been saying for a long time now that you don't see iron lungs around much nowadays.
My contribution would be fax machines. I've not seen on in ages.

R9 We have new style phone boxes here in the UK, but they're being used for dealing drugs!

Good old fashioned crack addicts - I learned how to work with them and then everyone switched to meth.
It’s the attention span as well as the mood. Crack heads are direct-able because they don’t want to stay in one place; Meth heads cobble together a scenario and I’m always the bad guy who says “no”, so I receive full drama over bullshit.

The foot-operated headlight brightness button that used to be on car floors, extreme left.
Greeting cards in variety stores and pharmacies that were bound in cellophane, numbered and arranged systematically(but were irretrievable) so you could see them. Once you had made your decision, the actual cards supply was in drawers underneath.
Electrically-lit bouquets of flowers mounted on a door frame where there had been a death. A card included the person's name, funeral home and where and when burial was to take place. This custom eventually stopped, because thieves would target these specific homes, knowing they'd be unoccupied for several hours on the day in question.
Troughs for watering horses, and mounting blocks.
A two-man team to operate a trolley/streetcar. One at the front where you got on actually "drove" the vehicle(it was run by a series of switches, no steering wheel involved), the other, situated at the middle door where you paid and eventually disembarked.
