Amazing Color Photos Document Everyday Life of an American Family in the Mid-1950s

Back when life was simple, a color slide collection from ennailuj shows daily life of an American family in the mid-1950s.

"My husband's grandfather took a lot of photos, mostly slides. The photos were for the most part taken in Nebraska and California, with a smaller number taken on Whidbey Island in Washington and in Bemidji, Minnesota."

  1. A Google map search revealed that the house, now over 60 years old, is still there and is still owned by descendants of the couple that originally built it.
