Reminiscing about the past is not always a sad thing, most of the time, it brings us to our carefree childhood! The fifties was referred to as the “boom” era. It gave us the post-war vibes where people were just starting to recover on anything. After two decades of economic depression, people started moving to the suburbs to start again. This period introduced us to the booming economy and the booming suburbs. As people started creating small communities, suburban life came to exist. Malls were built, drive-in restaurants became popular, diners opened up 24 hours. It was during this period when women stayed at home and took care of the kids while the man works 24/7 to bring food to the table.
