Whenever I buy an item that I don’t know a lot about, I do a little research on both the internet and in reference books that I have around the house to see what I can find out about the item. There are times that I run across fun bits of information about other items.
Here’s some of what I ran across for the year 1957:
January 6th—Elvis Presley appears on THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW for the 3rd and final time. This broadcast is known for Elvis being only shot from the waist up.
January 13th—Wham-O produces the first Frisbee.
September 4th—this is when the Ford Motor Company introduced the Edsel. When the car was released, Ford proclaimed September 4th as “E-day”.
October 12—on this day, the famous Christmas book HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! By Dr. Seuss is published.
This is just a handful of all the things that happened in 1957. What have you run across?
