In this PowerPoint presentation, we will turn back the clock to look at what made the 1950s memorable.
First, we’ll look at what was happening on the national scene: the culture, music, television, technology, fashion, politics, etc. We’ll also look at 50s cars with their distinctive wrap-around windshields and tail fins. Do you remember the Henry J. or the Rambler?
Then we will turn to the local scene and view photographs from the era and take a look at newspaper articles to remind us of what was happening in Meredith then. We’ll even listen to some 50s music.
We’ll also give you a chance to tell us what made the 50s memorable to you. So, come to enjoy an evening of nostalgia and memories.
