Fabulous 50s

Each year we celebrate the fabulous 50s at National Museum of Rural Life. The fashions, food and music of the 1950s are back in vogue for one weekend. The event features vintage hair styling, songs of the era, vintage 1950s vehicles and more. Here are some 1950s objects from the collections to inspire and delight. http://www.nms.ac.uk/fabulous50s
