1949: What a Year it Was! - Coffee Table Birthday Book (2nd Edition)

Regular price $21.95 Sale

What A Year 1949 Was! Orson Welles was a critical hit in the noir film, “The Third Man,” and audiences split their sides when Abbott and Costello Met Frankenstein. “Dragnet” hit the radio for the first time while television handed out the first-ever Emmy Awards. Fats Domino recorded “The Fat Man,” which some consider the first true Rock ‘n’ Roll recording. Harry S. Truman was sworn in as the 33rd U.S. President as the Berlin Airlift brought food relief to war-torn Europe. The first Polaroid Land Camera produced a photograph in 60 seconds; top names in French fashion traveled to New York. Boxer Joe Louis came out of retirement, and the New York Yankees defeated the Brooklyn Dodgers to win their 12th World Series championship.

Our big, classic hardbound yearbook is filled to bursting with stories, photos, and artwork detailing the movies, music, shows, sports, fashion, news, people, places, and events that made 1949 unique and memorable. Personalize it on the special dedication page for a handsome and much appreciated gift.
