- But the other pictures from that party show the women--they were there. All
told, we have maybe 20 pictures from various Vandercook company parties and
they all smoked and had drinks in hand.

- Yeah, the 1950s. When the US was on top of the world economically, and the future was rosy for the family hopeful, and actually obtainable in their lifetime.
I recently read a report that if one were to compare life expectancy in the US from the 1950s to current and exclude the advances in curing heart disease, we are currently in decline, and should expect that to continue. The good news, life expectancy increases in times of economic turmoil.
