A Little Time with Old Albums and a 1950's Viewmaster!
Obviously there were no digital options in the fifties, so that makes these old black and whites, more precious. When groups gathered to smile for a camera, there was usually just one click. And when you finally used up a roll of film and had it developed, you were surprised to find photos taken over a year's time.
The photos were then put in shoeboxes or albums, using those dandy black triangles! And sadly, the photos were often blurry and un-cropped. But I enjoyed every minute as I looked over the torn pages of these old family albums. There are memories connected to some old photos, but mostly the images invite you to imagine the stories!
The old Viewmaster was a hoot! But I can only look at 3-D pics of the White House and Capital for so long. Give me a photo album with people any day!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
