Admin Post I’m watching a special on Apollo 11. 1969 Everyone in the control rooms are (famously) chain smoking, of course. I was born in 1972. There’s a picture of the delivery room doctor holding me with a lit cigarette in his hand... minutes after I was born. I remember most of my grown relatives smoking inside when I was a kid, but my parents never smoked. By the time I came of age, smoking was basically banned in most public places. They still had smoking/non-smoking sections in restaurants up through the 90s. But I don’t remember what it smelled like. Did all of public just basically smell like a night club or bar scene?
