Subject: The 1950s picture thread

Written By: amjikloviet on 10/08/14 at 3:03 pm

So I think most of us here didn't even live in the '50s, but I want to start a picture thread for the decade because it would be interesting to see all the pics!

That jukebox being 1950s is one of the biggest misconceptions out there. First off, the original model (Wurlitzer 1015) was made from 1946 to 1948. Second, this is a newer CD model from the late 1980s or '90s. An actual '50s jukebox is better represented by a model that typically has a lot of chrome and some sharp edges around it along with glass in which you can easily see the record being loaded. This 1959 Seeburg 222 Stereo is a good example:

Howard, when I had seen this an opening song instantly popped into my head. I will give you the rest of the movies
referenced in the verse of said song....only a true fan will get the reference.

Explorer 6, or S-2, was an American satellite launched on August 7, 1959. It was a small, spheroidal satellite designed to study trapped radiation of various energies, galactic cosmic rays, geomagnetism, radio propagation in the upper atmosphere, and the flux of micrometeorites. It also tested a scanning device designed for photographing the Earth's cloud cover, and transmitted the first pictures of Earth from orbit.

1955 - Little Richard entered a New Orleans recording studio to begin two days of recording. Things were not going well and during a break, Richard and his producer; Bumps Blackwell went to the Dew Drop Inn for lunch. Richard started playing the piano in the bar like crazy, singing a loud and lewd version of ‘Tutti Frutti.’ With only fifteen minutes left in the session, Richard recorded the song and coined the phrase, ‘a-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-lop-bam-boom.’

The farthing never circulated as freely as the halfpenny; minting ceased in 1956 and farthings were demonetised at the end of 1960.
