Yeah back then everything was CF. But the Ideal Solution was meant for beginners and not for speedsolving. Waterman said back in his original description that his algs can be used as an extention on other methods

Not true. The most popular method was layer-by-layer as taught in the book "The Simple Solution to Rubik's Cube". Fast people used CF but they were a super, super, super-small minority.

Corners First was 1974 the first approach to crack the Cube. Ernö Rubik used this method himself. LBL was originally invented by the mathematician David Singmaster who also shared an office with Morwen Thistlethwaite. Singmaster introduced LBL + notation in his book Notes on the Rubiks Cube.
CF was already back then a real good approach.
