Nostalgia of The 1950s

The permanent exhibition at Helsinki City Museum presents nostalgic memories of the 1950s.
Some of us remember how modest the homes looked at back then.

From my childhood home I remember gobelins like this and cushions
and blankets with these patterns!

My father used to listen to sport transmissions with a similar radio.

A very popular cross stich pattern was the castle of Vyborg.
My mother had stiched a similar one too.

 Plum series by Arabia dates also back to 1950s.
They are popular collection items. Photo below: Miantica

A beautiful entrance door. I think it belonged to some cinema.

Elanto was an important cooperation store chain in Helsinki.
There was an Elanto shop in every corner, that’s where the saying:
Spreads as Elanto!

Jukebox with C-cassettes in a bar / diner.

Paul Anka visited Helsinki & Linnanmäki amusement park in 1959

  1. What a nostalgic feeling! Remember, my parents had a similiar radio still in 1979, when I've lost them for a own life.
    Send you a big box full of sunshine for a good new week :)

  2. wie witzig! an einiges erinnere ich mich auch noch - meine eltern waren teilweise so eingerichtet. und "diana" von paul anka habe ich geliebt!!

  3. ...I came of age in the '50s and how I remember Paul Anka and others! There are still these remote controls that are connected to Jukeboxes that still play 45 records in a few restaurants here. My grandmother had a large floor model radio that was similar to this one. Thanks Ritta for sharing this flash from the past, enjoy your weekend.

  4. Oh yes, those are memories at their best. I love such old things, even furnishings. In my kitchen you can listen to music from an old radio too. Got it from my grandpa.

    Have a good start into the new week and greetings over to you


  5. Oh, how wonderful, Riitta! I LOVE the 50ies ...wonderful pictures and Memories ...
    Thank you for one of my favorite songs from Paul Anka!♥️♥️♥️
    Wishing you a happy new week!
    Love and hugs, Claudia xo

  6. Upeita kuvia ja ihana nostalginen tuulahdus:) Mukavaa alkanutta viikkoa♥

  7. My mother had a radio similar to that in your shot. I remember very clearly the names of the cities where the broadcastings came from: for instance Brussels,...Oslo...and...Lahti! Therefore many years later I asked my husband to visit the radio museum in Lahti and those two antennas.
    I like the Arabia plum series too.
    Thanks for sharing. Have a great new week ahead!

  8. What a great exhibition. I love seeing things from recent history. It is fun to reminisce. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  9. Hello, what a nice tour of the museum. I remember my sister had a crush on Paul Anka. Good times and happy memories. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week.

  10. What a wonderful museum! I love to visit the antique shops here and I see so many items that my grandmother had in her home...such fun!

  11. It is quite amazing to look back, and of course some of these items are now becoming highly sought-after antiques.

  12. Hello Dear Riitta!
    A beautiful world from olden days.
    Amazing photos. Lovely dishes for coffee, sugar, salt ...


  13. hahahah, sometimes I think our home is a museum. We've got family stuff from the 1950s and earlier. :-)

  14. Remembering the 50ties, especially the radio. Do you know the Wurlitzer? A friend collect them:

    Happy MosaicMonday

  15. I was in elementary school in the late 50s. They were simpler times for sure. - Margy

  16. I was born in the 50s so I remember how different things were then too. The rooms in houses were a lot smaller! And the closets? They were SMALL! Love seeing your photos and the music!

  17. An historical exhibition like this can spark lots of memories!

  18. This exhibit brought back wonderful memories to me of my grandmother. My father also had a radio similar to the one you photographed.

  19. Riitta - fabulous memories. Of course, I am too young (smile) to remember them, but I have certainly seen similar items that have been saved by my parents and their siblings! Thanks for sharing with Mosaic Monday!

  20. that's real nostalgia. I love all these old furnitures, especially the old radio

  21. I was born in 1940, so the 50s brings many memories, needless to say! Not exactly the same, but pretty close! Actually the jukeboxes looks exactly the same! Everyone who was a teenager during those years will know that!

  22. The fifties looked a little different here. That radio looks '40s.

  23. Muy bonito e interesante. Un beso.
