Relive One of Indianapolis Most Exciting Decades
World War II didnt just slow Indiana down, it practically brought it to a halt. The image of an overgrown Indianapolis Speedway is startling. But when the war ended, the city and its people emerged ready to make a better life for themselves and their neighbors. As the GIs returned home, they bought shiny new cars, drove out to the suburbs, purchased their dream homes and began filling them with babies.

Relive Indy in the 50s as you stroll through the decade with WISH-TV news anchor and Indianapolis native Mark Ahern. Reminisce about what was in fashion, on film and what people did for fun. See historical photos and footage, and hear unique perspectives from local celebrities like basketball legend Oscar Robertson in this film, previously enjoyed on public television. Get ready to go back to a simpler time of hula hoops, black-and-white television, jazz and drive-ins in Indy in the 50s!

There were great pictures from the past. My wife lived there in the 1950's and remembers the places well.

Great DVD.

We had a taped version that was in bad shape and hard to view. The new one is great for anyone growing up around Indy in the 50's.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible DVD November 24, 2012
By Bonnie
This is without question the most disjointed, badly edited, & boring DVD I have ever seen. I was so excited to get it, as my husband & I both grew up in Indpls. during the '50's. The uninteresting commentators talked about what a great city Indpls. was, & how proud they were to be a part of it. It made me feel ashamed, & also made me wonder if I had glorified my happy childhood in Indpls., because that sure wasn't the way I remembered my life. I had planned on showing this to my daughters & my grandson, but instead, I promptly put it in the wastebasket when we finished watching it.
