1950’s footage: airliners, burger drive thru, parties.

Theres plenty of quality black and white footage of the 50’s, but here is some Technicolor, and I tried to avoid 240p resolution etc, so hopefully this set of clips can really convey the essence of the 1950’s in vivid authenticity.

As to the aircraft – feast your eyes on the prop-liners of the day – and early jetliners too. King of the sky back then was probably the Constellation – I see it in almost every clip, but also the Stratocruiser and DC-series such as the DC4 etc.

Its all stunning imagery of that epoch, probably my favourite though are these shots of the Stratocruiser majestically taxxing across a bridge with 1950’s cars on the highway. here:
