History has proved what we knew then!

Each generation has stimuli and associations which are specific to their youth.

Fifties Fads, Fashions, Slang ... Elvis, Songs, Cars ... and much more

This is a fabulous site for 1950's memorabilia. Don't be surprised if you find yourself absorbed for hours, telling tall tales and old war stories to your family and friends, and incorporating 1950's slang into your emails.

There's a CHALLENGING thought. Maybe you could write a story using as much slang from the 1950's as possible. We would love to post it here or see it as a piece in our Magee59 Collaborative Blog.

Do you have some material or a link which you would like to see included in this page?
