    Many of the later model cars are of the 1952-53 era and I know that the Chrysler/Plymouth dealership run by Del Manning was established in 1952 and lasted until 1956. This is shown in the later Batavia Avenue scenes.

    I was born in 1950 in Yorkshire, England and I can still vividly recall the post war community spirit and mutual respect that existed well into the mid sixties. To this day I can walk the half mile street I grew up in and tell you the names of 90% of the people who occupied each house and I’m sure they could do the same. These days most folks couldn’t even tell you who lives next door and they care even less about who they are. Advancements in medicine and technology since those days have been amazing. But over the same period, erosion of traditional family values and the stability and respect they engendered has resulted in a society rife with one parent families, many of whom have siblings with (sometimes different) fathers they never see or even know. And without that vital stability and authority a father figure used to provide, there has been a gradual descent into a society overrun with far too many ill disciplined, out of control, semi feral kids who don’t even respect the one parent they have, so is it any wonder they have no respect for anyone else? Examples of a time lost forever: The ability of women, girls and even children to walk alone and feel safe along streets and footpaths at night. Self service machines outside corner shops 24/7, full of cigarettes and money to dispense change, but never vandalised. The habit of youths not to use even the mildest of swear words when girls were present, compare that with the ‘Gogglebox’ habit today of parents and their children using gutter language in every other sentence when speaking to each other. But moreover, the instinctive respect young people had, not just for their own parents but for other adults, too. For all their iPhones, iPads, game consoles and multi media toys, I wouldn’t swap the simple delights of the wonderful childhood I enjoyed during my formative years in the 50’s and 60’s for anything the modern child has in their possession. It’s easy for the typically cynical, sarcastic youth of today to criticise the undeniable short comings of those bygone days. But they remain oblivious to the extinction of so much of that priceless, irretrievable past. But the greatest tragedy of all is that since ‘progress’ dictates that society looks only forwards, not back, how can the disintegration of so much of our past be put right when those who would be charged with the task are the product of the very people responsible for its destruction?

    At 0:55 that's the old train station that burned down in the 70's. I knew there was double trackage there but never knew there were so many industrial buildings in that spot. And now so many trees have grown up. Back then those hills were completely bare.

    My three siblings were born in the 50's, I wasn't born until late 1961. Didn't get to experience the 50's but still the 60's was still fun being a kid. Nothing like today. We actually went outside to play. No cell phones or computers. Black and White TV with about 4 channels. No cable. We used our imaginations back then. Today's kids just bury their faces in a cell phone. Sad.

    Blissful summer days and nights as kids...playing baseball, pee gee ball or whiffle ball wherever we could find a spot, fishing, riding our bikes, catching snakes and other creatures, hop scotch, jumping and/or skipping rope, roller skating, playing war games, cowboys and indians, making racing buggies from whatever we could find. In the evening, it was "kick the can", "hide and seek", catching fire flies and putting them in glass jars or just plain hiding from cars going by. We never ran out of things to do. It was a great time in America to be a kid and of course, then it was gone in a flash!

No crime, no child predators, Mom let you walk downtown to buy a candy bar and didn't have to worry, no war, no rationing (WWII), men were back working and families could even afford a second car!!! The JFK assassination in '63 and social upheaval with the Vietnam War, then the MLK Jr. and Bobby Kennedy assassinations brought it all to an end - and this country still hasn't recovered!!!!

    I grew up with 4 sisters. Born 1949. Life is never perfect but I have to say I had the best childhood ever! No helicopter parenting. All we knew was when we heard our father's whistle, we were to come home immediately. We were middle class and sat at the dinner table every night, sang to Mitch Miller and marched on to the 60s and 70s and beyond. For some of us, growing up was innocent and uncomplicated. I don't believe today's children have the option of innocence. Remember when we posed for pictures? It was just a rag tag bunch. Today, when a kid is asked for a pic, they go into immediate model pose. Again, every generation grew up with uncertainties of the world but we at least had a small window where we could be kids

    The post war generation was the most fortunate, healthiest, smartest generation in American history to date. I saw an archive photo of Fairmount Indiana in which James Dean returned home in 1954 to meet friends on the main st. They were thin, well groomed, well dressed and smiling. Fast forward to 2019 and the same street, same spot is populated with a scattering of young men dressed in scruffy baggy shorts and trainers, overweight and looking down at the pavement. Modern life is rubbish really and the US has definitely gone down hill. Young people be confident, walk tall , walk straight and look the world in the eye.
