Back To School 1957

Hello my fellow nostalgia buffs!

Welcome to my new blog! My first "mini" theme to kick off with is...Back to School.

I shall post store ads and various bits of information from newspapers with the "back to school" theme and give you a hint of those great styles that the kids wore during my various visits to certain years way back in our wonderful retro past. 

The year is 1957. The place is Bridgeport, Connecticut. I had no idea what a great spot downtown Bridgeport was back in retro times with lots of great and unique department stores of its very own.

I have many ads from Bridgeport over the years and it is a great place to visit to get a good feel for what we bought, wished we could buy and what we were told we just HAD to have by these great stores now long gone. 

Now I will let Leavitts, Kay's, Read's, Skydel's, Howland's and more do the talking:-)

Enjoy! More to follow!
