I was born in 1957, so I missed the early Deco Art, and the insanity about the Atom Bomb. I do remember “duck and cover” in grammar school. I always thought that these desks we are ducking under must be pretty strong, protecting us from an Atomic Blast.
With that said, I have found some really interesting photo’s from the Nuclear Age of the 1950’s. I kind of, in a weird way, miss the days of ultimate capitalism and what Americans did to promote products, push safety and of course, good food with LARD.
So here are some pictures that I hope you enjoy, and takes you back to a time in America where things were simple……….
#1 The Robot Toy’s
The theme of the day in the 1950’s and early 60’s was Robot, Space Alien Monsters From Planet X. Yes, I remember these fun toys, they were heavy and built really well, and kind of cool for the time . This kid has the extra glasses and helmet to go with his robot. Pretty snazzy.
