Suggested correction: Season 1 starts in mid-1958 and goes into 1959, which would coincide with the introduction of pantyhose.

Show generally

Factual error: Taxicabs appearing in various scenes show that they are fitted with side marker lights on the fenders. Those were not used on American cars until 1968.

Season 1 generally

Factual error: In the Greenwich Village record shop, the vinyl records are shown with polythene sleeves. At that time, vinyl LP's were always factory sealed in cellophane shrink (unless it was later removed), not poly sleeves.

Suggested correction: I was a kid in the 50s, and the term pool "floaties" or "floaters" was used.

Ethan... Esther... Chaim - S4-E7

Factual error: When Midge and Rose leave the club after the magicians act you can see tactile paving at the crossing. This can't be possible as tactile paving was first developed in Japan by Seiichi Miyake in 1965, so they're 3 years too early.

Strike Up the Band - S3-E1

Other mistake: When Midge is doing her skit for the soldiers she is pretending to read articles off a magazine. Yet instead of flipping the magazine, she is swiping as if reading off a smartphone.

Suggested correction: "Swiping" is not specific to smartphones or computer tablets. People often do this to speed through books, magazines, or documents, usually by slightly moistening the tip of the index finger, rather than individually turning pages. Midge is pantomiming her act, so her action is naturally a bit exaggerated for effect.
