Modern times are great for a lot of reasons: advanced medicine, the latest gadgets, the ability to travel across the country in a matter of hours.
And while I love the modern comforts that come from living in 2016, certain things used to be better back in the day, like manners and home-cooked meals.
Sure, it’s fun to think back to the 1950′s. We had poodle skirts, beautiful cars, and Elvis even got his start. It’s hard not to look back without getting nostalgic, like with these bizarre beauty queens of the 50′s.
However, for me, the 50′s are about more than a trip down memory lane. There were just certain things that our country did better back then.
I’m not sure I would want to go back and live 60-some-odd years ago, but when I take a look at these 12 simple things that Americans did better in the 50′s, it definitely makes me consider it!
