1958 Cost of Living.  We got married in 1956 and grandpa made $435.00 per month!  Our rent was $75.00 per month!  We paid for gas & electric.  We had a 5 room apartment on the second floor of a 2 flat house.  We had a hot water tank in the kitchen we had to light when we wanted hot water!  Learned to plan ahead.  Plenty of times we left and had to come back to check the tank to make sure we shut it off.  It would have blown up if we forgot it!
