Come join us in 1946
Sixty four years ago, the year 1946...just a year after the end of World War II. The world was a much different place than it is now...the Internet was 23 years away, television was still relatively uncommon (and only black-and-white), the cellular phone was decades in the future. Harry Truman was President, the first theme park opens in the United States (Holiday World, originally called Santa Claus Land). The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed the year at 177.20. "Annie Get Your Gun" opens on Broadway. Records on vinyl appear for the first time. Timex watches are introduced. The average price for a new car was $1,400, gasoline was $0.21/gallon, bread was $0.10 a loaf, and the average annual salary for the United States was $3,150/year, with minimum wage at $0.40/hour.
This world is the world in which the story of the Keller family begins. A happy, prosperous family from Ohio, they nonetheless have had their lives changed by the war like so many Americans. But as the nation slowly recovers, so too do the Kellers, and on a sunny August morning we join them for a day in their life.
What does life have in store for the Kellers, Deevers, Lubeys, and Bayliss'? Join us on September 3rd at 8 PM and see!
