The 50's was 10 years

It's interesting that we memorialize this one decade as the peak of Americana. I wonder if it has anything to do with tv becoming commonplace in homes and simply portraying a reality that never quite existed. Or only existed as a result of war ration weary people becoming consumers. It's interesting to think about because the 50's seem so much larger than life but were only one decade.
