  6. The colorful poster brought a huge smile to my face! A couple weeks ago I toured a 1950’s era home in my community. The current owners have preserved much of the past. A hallway connecting a rec area to the garage was wallpapered with 50’s era airline posters. Another hallway is papered with 1950’s children’s art work. Onebedroom has a stairway to a former bomb shelter filled with appropriate artifacts from 1954. The master bathroom is wall papered with professional theater playbills. Primary sources are all around us!
