That's how long it's been since Wrigley Field last saw a World Series game played in front of the ivy.
Sure, 71 years is a long time, but when you break it down by days, it seems even more daunting.
For starters, take a glance at a snapshot of what Wrigley - and the world - looked like on the day of the last World Series game on Chicago's North side:
Obviously, that was well before Wrigley got lights (1988).

Here's some more perspective on how stunningly different life was back in 1945:
—The average cost of a new house was $4,600.
—The average salary was $2,400 per year per person.
—Gas cost 15 cents a gallon.
—New cars were just over $1,000.
—Life expectancy was 65.9 years (life expectancy in America is 79.3 years in 2016).
—Population of the U.S. was just shy of 140 million (In 2016, America's population is more than 324 million).
—Major League Baseball had only 16 teams, including zero teams west of St. Louis.
—The Giants had yet to move to San Francisco and were still in New York. The Dodgers had yet to move to Los Angeles and still made their home in Brooklyn.
—Washington had a baseball team, but they were called the Senators, not the Nationals.
—St. Louis, Boston and Philadelphia each had two baseball teams, including the St. Louis Browns, Boston Braves and Philadelphia Athletics.
—Tigers pitcher Hal Newhouser won American League MVP honors while Cubs first baseman Phil Cavarretta took home the NL MVP with only six homers, though he did hit .355 with a .949 OPS.
—The first Super Bowl was still 22 years away from being played.
Among world events, 1945 was also when Adolf Hitler died, Germany surrendered in World War II and the U.S. dropped atomic bombs on Japan.
America was also getting used to Harry S. Truman as president after Franklin D. Roosevelt died in office in April 1945.
Of course, if we go as far back as the last time the Cubs won the World Series, life would be quite a bit different even in the 37 years between 1908 and 1945.
