Hudson Driver

Hudson Driver

Here I am at the wheel of the 1948 Hudson posted earlier. I figure I'm about three here, which would make it around 1949-50.

47-55

1947-1955 were the best years of my life. Lived in Japan for 2½ years (father part of occupation) and graduated H.S. there. Back in the States, had my first job, then went to Berkeley, where I met my future (and still) husband, married in 1954, first child 1955. There was plenty happening. What do you want to know.?

Except for the Korean war, it was a relatively quiet time while countries, people and industries pulled their lives back together.

Twilight Zone

The time between the end of WWII and 1955-ish is an interesting era that I’ve love to know more about... yet seems largely ignored in history if not in nostalgia compared to the periods before and after. I wonder why? I understand the power and draw of WWII and then the late 50s then 60s but in between seems so lost.

Thanks for the pix tterrace and Shorpy for hosting them.
