Life Magazine: The Nifty Fifties

Did you know you can read old books and magazines on Google?

I love this 1972 issue of Life Magazine that covers the 50s revival. I was born in 1982, so this was foreign to me, but when I think about the fact that Grease was made in the 70s, it makes total sense!

I've always been drawn to the fifties - I was always obsessed with poodle skirts when I was a kid! I always wanted to be a bobby soxer for Halloween!

Click here to read the article "The Nifty Fifties." There's even a quiz on the 50s at which I was terrible. :)

  1. Oh my gosh!that is so interesting! I only skimmed through it, but I LOVE the ads... It's crazy how much has changed in the last 40 (OHHH) years! Was 1972 really forty years ago? I was a teen... and thought life was grand!

  2. Oh My Gosh!! Life Magazine was $0.50 in 1972!!
