I love this flickr set. Mom's World.

Lots of everyday shots and staged shots from the early 50s. The photographer or subject of most of the photos is a striking blonde who is still around to provide thoughtful commentary or stories about almost all of the photos. Some of the stories are charming and some are deeply touching and tragic.

Make room, Norma Jean. Dizamn!

I also like all of the interior shots. Having spent my childhood with grandmothers who had acquired most of their furniture and home effects in the 1950s and never saw fit to replace them, the style is comforting to me.
