Life and Times in 1958

After graduation from high school, life was tough when the average yearly income was just $5,087! But then when Dwight D. Eisenhower was President, a house cost only $18,640. Milk cost only 51 cents a half gallon, 10 lbs of potatoes cost 63 cents and 79 cents would bring home the bacon. Back then we could buy a loaf of bread at the grocery store for the 1958 price of 19 cents! Yes, those were the days when we listended to songs like "April Love" and "The Purple People Eater". And who could forget the enchanting melody of "Tom Dooley"? When we were glued to the television set, we watched "The Jack Benny Show", the most popular show in 1958. Remember that it was the New York Yankees over the Milwaukee Braves in the 1958 World Series?
