GREENCASTLE, Pa. - On the steps of the Allison-Antrim Museum is a Dairimaid milk box with glass bottles inside, seemingly awaiting a delivery more than 50 years past its original use.
The milk box serves as the only clue outside the museum that inside the 1950s and 1960s thrive in "Life was Different in Black and White," an exhibit that has had its run extended into August.
It next will be open Thursday from noon to 3 p.m. at the museum on South Ridge Avenue.
The display of fashions, toys, electronics and housewares has elicited "a lot of memories from the baby boomers," said Bonnie Shockey, the museum's president.
The premise of the exhibit is formed around the lyrics to "Black and White" by Steve Vaus in which he wishes for "a TV world of '63" because "life looked better in black and white."
