This site has been lovingly created over many years to enlighten, entertain, educate and dazzle anyone who thinks that nothing important or cool ever happened during these decades. Try the first man on the moon, awesome enough? How about the computer? Video games? Star Trek? Elvis? The Beatles? This list is only the beginning of your journey through the 1950s, 60s and 70s. So buckle your seat belt, no texting allowed and drive on in.

A Sad Note To The Visitors And Friends Of FiftiesWeb
The creator, author, researcher and webmaster of this web site, Candace, has sadly passed away. She has moved on to new challenges and opportunities, a place which no doubt has both a soda fountain and a juke box.
She was and is an inspiration to everyone she ever met, always lending a helping hand and a kind word. No one will miss her more than me, her brother.
This web site is a tribute to her love of the fifties, her knowledge and mostly her passion for both learning and teaching. I will endeavor to keep it fresh and true to her vision of the decade for in it’s pages I hear my sister’s voice everyday.Thank you for visiting FiftiesWeb
