1950s High Rise

This week's challenge at CD Sunday is 1950s. My mum must have been a teenager in the 1950s, but I doubt whether Grimsby was this groovy. (And that's not Dock Tower through the window).

I used images from  Daisy Trail /Craft Artist 50s Fever and My Craft Studio Fab Glam Fifties. Sorry about the shadows - taking the photo in artificial light - the days are getting shorter already and most of the daylight is while I'm at work!

As well as CD Sunday, I'd like to enter:
The Squirrel and the Fox Happy birthday
Little Red Wagon  Back in time

Great 50's image. That record player is just like the one we had. Wow - we didn't even have to wind it up like we did on the one we had before.
Thank you for joiningg in the challenge.

Oh this is wonderful, a very true image of a young teenager, how do I know, I think it could be me. A Dansette record player and 45s on the floor. thanks for being with us in the 1950s at CD Sunday Challenges. Caz

A great design, super image of a teenager. I do remember having 45's (still have them) and a record player similar to this but it was the end of the 1950's foe me. Thanks for joining us at CD Sunday this week.
