  • STAY SWELL!  You are a teenager living in the 1950's and you are super popular!  Learn all about what was popular among teenagers and about all of the latest fads! Do you know as much as you think you do?  By Regina Banks
  • Welcome to my home! Back in the 1950's this clothing was considered super modern and cool! A plain white shirt, scarf, poodle skirt and heels to match was all the rage! 
  • This is the diner, mainly known for its burgers, fries and milk shakes! This is where we could eat  and enjoy the company of everyone around us. 
  • And how did we get to the diner? Well in the 1950's the first car was invented, along with the rise of suburbia! These cars were usually exotic colors like red, green and yellow! No more horse drawn carriages for us modern day kids!
  • And yes, we had phones. They may have been the ones where you had to spin the numbers, but they were super new to us! We definitely spent time calling our friends to talk about gossip after a super full day! We used some different words though! The police were "the fuzz", a cute guy was "a dreamboat", a child was "an ankle biter", and a party was "a bash"! Don't those words sound swell?
  • Well reader, I hope you enjoyed your time here and most importantly, learned a lot! Hope you come to visit me sometime soon here in the 1950's!
