1950-1959

Kilroy Was Here!

My memories of the '50's:
Elvis Presley,


- THE KING OF ROCK 'N ROLL -

hot rod muscle cars, Ricky Nelson,
dirt oval race tracks and driving the Powder Puff races,
soda fountain Malted Milks, Fabian,
drive-in movies (sneaking in for free),
Hollywood mufflers, real drive-in restaurants,
The Platters, James Dean movies,

school days without air conditioning
- yes, we survived the heat!!,
real movie theatres for the glorious musical movies
- like South Pacific, Oklahoma and Dancing in the Rain,
spending all Saturday morning at the movies
for 50 (includes popcorn and candy)


Now, some highlights from this decade were:
1950-1953....The Korean War
1956....1st Transatlantic Phone Cable
and the 1st Nuclear Power Plant

Now, you can return to my home page
and continue a memory slide!!!!
