I remember as a 12-year old boy scout in the early sixties taking a tour through an Air Traffic Control Center, and I thought it was the neatest thing I had ever seen.  Most of the people there had on white shirts and ties, and of course crew cuts as I remember.  Today I ran across this video of an old FAA film that talks about ATC back in the day.  It shows an ARTCC just how I remember it from that tour.  It's a hoot.  You can tell traffic density wasn't as it is today by the leisurely way they give instructions.

That was amazing.  A few notes... LAX approach is still 124.9.  Non-RVSM sucks.  It's fun to see what the Center looked like brand new.  I want a headset like that.

Actually, the best part was the motorized airplane models in the academy.
