Daily Nudge: old items or habits

Name an item that people used to use or carry, or habits that people used to have, that one no longer sees today. Can be good, bad, or indifferent. Maybe it hasn’t died out completely, but is not as widespread as it was in the past.

Cultures change over time. The new crowds out the old, after the two coexist side by side for a time. Some rue the old, resent the new, while others embrace innovations readily.

Eventually, many features, practices, and objects become relics of the past. Your task today is to describe, in wistful tone or not, one or more of those relics.
