Memory Lane A Nostalgic Glance Backwards Good Old days of the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s

7 September 2016 “A Nostalgic Glance Backwards Good Old days of the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s” presented by Rochelle Pennington and held in the Brown County Central Library – lower level 515 Pine St Green Bay, Wisconsin from 6:00 pm until 7:30 pm.

Come and take a walk down Memory Lane to the “Good Old Days” of the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s with author Rochelle Pennington. Her historical, light-hearted program will detail everyday life during the bygone years of corner phone booths, party lines, hand-me-down clothes, doctors who made house calls, wringer washing machines, marble matches, Howdy Doody shows, and outhouses.

Audience attendees will be invited to remember a time when percolating coffee pots, mothers in aprons, flour sifters, home-baked bread, and suppers prepared from canning jars lining the pantry shelves were part of everyday life.

The author’s power-point presentation, featuring vintage photographs, will be complemented by a large collection of antiques she will display.
