41
Poodles
  • Poodles become very popular. Poodles influence
    everything from skirts to lamps, even hair
    influenced by the poodles.

42
Cholorphyl
  • Beat odor. I figured your first question would be
    - what is that supposed to do for you? And the
    answer is that it was widely believed that
    chlorophyll eliminated bad smells.So they added
    it to every kind of product imaginable. The
    picture at left just suggests the variety and
    number of items to which chlorophyll became a
    promotable ingredient.Yes, chlorophyll is the
    stuff that makes plants green. Today many people
    still tout the benefits of it for health. No, I
    don't think you can just go out and eat a shrub
    and get the same result.While not engaging in
    the debate of chlorophyll's therapeutic
    properties, suffice it to say that it sold well.
    Until "The Journal of the American Medical
    Association" pointed out grazing goats virtually
    live on chlorophyll and they smell bad just the
    same.

43
Coonskin Caps
  • Davy Crockett was a big influence on kids. These
    hats were very popular with the kids who liked
    anything to do with the West, or cowboys or
    indians.
  • 100 million dollars worth of coonskin caps were
    sold in a year.

44
Telephone Cramming
  • Starts in South Africa, goes to England, and then
    comes to California in 1959.
  • Record of 25 people set in S.Africa 22 in
    America
  • VW Beetle cramming also was a short-lived fad.

45
Pink
  • Formerly considered a "girlish" color, pink
    invaded men's wear. Yessir, pilgrims, even real
    tough hombres were donning pink ties, shirts, and
    bathrobes. Serious corporate types could be seen
    wearing pink under their grey flannel suits. This
    display of sartorial splendor was a radical
    departure from the drab neutral colors that once
    limited men's clothing choices. Pink was
    everywhere. There were pink bathrooms with
    accessories to match, pink cosmetics and of
    course, the ubiquitous pink poodle. And then
    there was Elvis with his famous pink Cadillacs.

Planning the Community
The Community Plan included schools, places of
worship, recreation areas and shopping facilities
as well as houses. This comprehensive approach is
analogous Levitt's house planning which, for
example, included landscaping as well as
providing a washer, stove and refrigerator in
each house. Levitts approach to community
planning and design created a full-service
community with "built-in" featuresjust like its
houses. For example, elementary schools were
centered inside each master block of sections so
that, in Levitt's words, "no child will have to
walk more than one half mile to school or cross
any major road." The Community Plan and design
included    41 Sections with 17,311 single
family houses    171 miles of roads    5
Olympic-sized community swimming pools   
Little League baseball fields    Lots of green
space and neighborhood parks    Large,
multi-purpose Community Hall    Two large,
centralized Shopping Centers    Sites set
aside donated for churches schools
