1955 What A Year It Was! Book (1st edition): 65th Birthday or Anniversary Gift

Regular price $21.95 Sale

What A Year 1955 Was! President Eisenhower suffered a heart attack and Rosa Parks’ refusal to give up her seat to a white man launched the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The Beat Generation was on the rise and J.R.R. Tolkien’s “return of the King” was published. James Dean catapulted to movie stardom, only to perish in a car wreck. Kevin Costner and Whoopi Goldberg were born. Big jackpot quiz shows were the new thing on TV. Rock and Roll dawned with Little Richard and Chuck Berry scoring big hits.

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 1955 unique and memorable. Personalize it on the special dedication page for a handsome and much appreciated gift.
