The diner - more than just a place to grab a bite, the diner is an expression of the free-flowing American spirit, as generous as a bottomless cup of coffee and a flashing neon sign beckoning the traveler or passer-by with the immortal words "Eat Here Now."

The 1950s was the first great age of the modern kitchen: labor-saving appliances, bright colors and the novelty of fitted units moved the kitchen from dankness into light, where it became the domain of the happy housewife and the heart of the home.

Chrome and neon were the new currency in this newly vital consumer culture, and no post-war consumer products trafficked more heavily in this currency than diners, bowling alleys, and trailer parks.

The drive-in movie theater brought together two distinct American institutions: cars and movies. Since the earliest drive-ins of the 1930s, these entertainment  complexes have been an integral part of American culture. Their appeal stretched to people from all corners of the country, offering a place for social gathering and various amusements. Take a ride down memory lane in this entertaining look at every aspect of the drive-in movie theater: the architecture, the marquees, the cars, the food, and much more. Black-and-white and color photos, along with period ads and other memorabilia, provide a highly illustrated tour from the origins of the drive-in, through its heyday in the 1950s, its decline, and its subsequent revival. 


The first chapter overviews the major events and trends of the decade, noting such memorable occasions as the first human-to-human kidney transplant (1950) and the publication of Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat (1957). Following chapters cover the presidency and popularity of Dwight Eisenhower, life in suburbia, the "red threat," automobiles, arts and entertainment, television, and sports. Everything is covered - music legends, Hollywood stars, important personalities, major political events, even what cars and toys were tops! - pink Cadillacs, fallout shelters, Sputnik.  Rock & Roll Generation: Teen Life in the 50s - superior black and white and full color photos - includes pictures of memorabilia. Major topics include: Roots of Rock and Roll, Hail The King, Teenage Dream, Chasing The Teenage Dollar, Rebels, Beats, and Cool Cats, Hot Rod Fever. If you were around in the 1950's you're sure to enjoy this volume. A memory-filled look at life of the teens nearly a half-century ago!


Jump back through time to an era when sitting at the counter in your neighborhood diner was sure to bring hearty made-from-scratch food, friendly service, and an atmosphere all its own. Those sleek stainless steel eateries can still be found with lines of faithful and appreciative customers waiting to scoot into a red leather booth and sink their appetites into true American comfort food. Featuring a fun, colorful journey through diner history. Retro Diner offers over 115 of the best comfort food recipes from the American roadside, including Blue Moon Diner's Patty Melt, Dixie Diner's Blueberry Pancakes, and Peach Cobbler from Jake's. Short the history of diners and how they originated. They hit their peak in the 1950's in the time of juke boxes and car hops and those magnificent train car-style diners that most of us only know from seeing in film and TV. Thankfully diners have undergone a resurgence in popularity in recent years, thanks in part to TV and film. Many have taken to restoring the old places and many new diners have been built in that classic 50's and 60' styling. 


Fabulous Fabrics of the 50s is the classic guide to the textiles of the exuberant post-war era, a time when bold new patterns and unprecedented color combinations revitalized décor. Designs based on science and fantasy proliferated; no home was complete without boomerang-patterned drapes slung across the picture window or a cowboy-print couch in the living room. In this nostalgia-packed celebration of textile design, more than 170 full-color photographs accompany lively text and detailed captions highlighting the playful patterns of the 50s. Their genesis is revealed in equally fabulous fabrics from earlier eras, such as jaunty nautical designs from the 40s, over-blown florals of the 30s, and the deco-inspired prints of the 20s. A must-have resource book for collectors, designers, decorators, artists, style mavens, and pop-culture buffs, Fabulous Fabrics of the 50s is a chic and colorful tribute to a fascinating era in textile design.

The very familiar 3-slot style payphone was first introduced in the 1950's and remained virtually unchanged until 1965. 

This appropriately christened prepay-style pay station will take you back to the days of old fashioned phone booths and 10-cent phone calls. Believe it or not, its predecessor was a post pay-style phone that actually allowed the caller to place their call and then pay once finished. 

While you don't have to pay for your calls with this Crosley replica, you will enjoy the functional coin slots complete with Crosley jingle as your money is deposited into the coin bank in the base of the unit.
