Focus on the 50s

 

     

THE FOLLOWING PAGES WILL PROVIDE an in depth look at the world of our youth: The 50s. Most of us probably didn't pay much attention to world events during the early years, but radio shows, movies, sports, and the latest fashion or toy probably caught our attention.

The year-by-year review which follows will refresh your memories and, no doubt, elicit comments like: "Oh, is that when 'that' happened."

So, enjoy the backward glance as you explore The Fifties.
