1956 Munnecke Family Sock Hop

Published by under family videos

This is some old 8 mm movie footage taken at my family home in Van Nuys, Ca in 1956. I’m the blond headed kid at the end who can’t dance. The family was celebrating the arrival of a fantastic new luxury, a 45 RPM record player. Seven of us in three generations lived in a 3 Br, 1 Bath house with 1100 square feet. Life was a little simpler, and perhaps happier, back then.  Music by Kevin MacLeod.
