Upstairs inside the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida -- there is a section made up in a very Disney-fake-but-cool fashion, to be like 1950's America. Outside an old shoppe, across from a model of the 1950's home, an older couple hang out and discuss with visitors what things were like in the 1950s.
I stopped and talked to the couple for awhile. The typical conversation where a more "seasoned" participant pontificates on America's current state as a superpower, the price of Oil, the location in which our clothes are manufactured and the polarization of the economy.
I didn't have the heart to tell the fella, I was just looking for somewhere to buy a fountain drink for a nickel. :)
I'm not sure the year. '54?
