These 10 Photos Of New Mexico In The 1950s Are Mesmerizing

The 1950s were all about big cars, poodle skirts, diners, drive-ins, rock n’ roll, and the American dream. Even though this decade also involved Civil Rights struggles, an intensification of the Cold War, and the advent of McCarthyism, it remains a time that makes many feel nostalgic. Here are 10 images of New Mexico from that iconic decade.

So what do you think of New Mexico in the 1950s? Do you have any images from this decade? If so, please share them on the Only In New Mexico Facebook page. We’d love to see them.
