A Look Back




For several Thursday's we will be
taking a look back at different 
decades.

Today we start with the 50's. 

As you look at the picture, you will 
see images from "the diner and the 
drive in." 
Those were places to meet and and 
to be seen. Classic cars, Rock n' Roll, 
burgers and fries plus shakes and 
malts. At the some drive-in's the car-
hop may have brought your food to
you on r
oller skates.

50's Fashion

Poodle skirts
Sweater sets
Varsity jackets
Jeans/White T-shirts
Saddle shoes
Cat-eye glasses


50's Entertainment

Books:

The Catcher and the Rye
was published in 1951.
The Lion, the Witch and the
Wardrobe was published in 
1950.
Harold and the Purple Crayon
was published in 1955.

Movies:

Singing in the Rain--1952
Rear Window--1954
Harvey--1950
Walt Disney's Cinderella--1950
Walt Disney's Peter Pan--1953

Toys:

Barbie--Icon of the 50's.
One of my most favorite toy
complete with great playtime
memories!

Music:

Rock n' Roll--

Elvis Presley's self titled album
came to the music forefront in
1956. Rock n' Roll was seen
as a passing trend but Elvis 
showed those naysayers!

Any 50's memories out in
blogland?

  1. I was born in the late 50s, so while I didn't experience a lot of these things, I sure remember some of them later on. Had no idea Harold and the Purple Crayon was that old. It was one of my son's favorite books, and I never heard of it until he got a copy. Fun post! Can't wait for the 60s, I do remember that!

    1. I was born in the next decade so don't have any experience with the 50's. But do enjoy looking back and who didn't love Elvis?
      I didn't not realize Harold was that old either.
      Glad you enjoyed the post!
