Welcome to Old Forty Fives. com, where the '50s and '60s come back to life.

When did Rock'n Roll start?

Some people think it started in 1953 with Ike Turner's "My Rocket 88," or Big Joe Turner with "Honey, Hush" in 1953, or "Shake, Rattle and Roll" 1954. Personally, I believe it started with the premiere of the movie Blackboard Jungle in theaters across the country, in 1955. This movie featured the song "Rock Around the Clock" by "Bill Haley and his Comets," which helped to propell Rock and Roll as a musical genre. It was reported that teenagers jumped from their seats to dance to the song.




Thanks to Sandy (Crump) Koskovick for sending in the link to early 1900 penny postcards from Watertown.  Very interesting

About the Penny Postcard Archives

Why "Penny Postcards"? These postcards cost 1˘ to mail. Postage was temporarily raised to 2˘ from 1917 to 1919 to cover the cost of World War I & from 1925 to 1928 (not sure the reason for the latter).
