I came across this today...a hospital bill from 1955 after the birth of a child in NY. Yes, a long time ago, but wow!
I have a similar one and mine is much cheaper than that. I was born in 1963 at Wiesbaden Air Force Base in Germany. My father was in the Army (101st) and my Mom worked for the Government. The hospital bill for being born on base was something like $2.19 Lol
