Back to the Fifties

About a month ago we drove the last motorcycle tour to Andelslandsbyen Nyvang (a vintage city) with my brother and sister in law. I didn't know the little vintage city existed and it is a pity because it was like being transported back to the fifties. It is a living museum build like in the forties and fifties. You can see different crafts, like this wooden top being turned:

Which I bought - for 1.5 dollars.

There was also co-op, where everything with prices were for sale:

Mum has often told me about a pack of cigarettes named Eiffel with only five cigarettes, which you could buy when you were out of money and needed to smoke:

The stocking department:

And old sodas with patent stoppers:

I fell in love with this old radio:

And at dear husband's job they have a switchboard like this in the basement:

Now and then a vintage car or steam engine drove by:

The nice sign of the bicycle repairer:

The chain is from a real bicycle.

Nice old truck:

And the KTAS-truck that passed by us a few times:

I really like old trucks, especially those with a "nose":

The smith, who looked like a real pirate:

While we were eating lunch, a vintage truck club visited:

I had to take a look:

This little two-toned Volvo was too cute.

You have to have a pinup on the radiator:

  1. Oh my goodness, this is just about as close as we can come to hopping in an actual time machine and transporting back to the fabulous fifties. I honestly think that if I lived anywhere near there, I would have grown up with goal of getting a job at this fabulous living history village. It's so awesome and is now one of the top places I want to visit in Europe. Thank you so much for the marvelous, photo filled introduction, dear Sanne.

    1. Thank you dear. I'm sure they would have hired you on the spot, if you applied for a job in the little town. If you lived nearby we would have dressed in our best fifties dresses and walked around arm in arm. Such a lovely picture in head. :)

  2. OMG! I used to be a switchboard operator in a department store in the 60's and I ran a similar switchboard with all the connection wires like the one you show. It was a little larger and of slightly newer materials but very dated. You had tio memorize all the extensions and as I recal, there were abiout 175 or more of them. (This is were I met F!) I got promoted before the store got a more modern one. I feel so old seeing that pic! I loved this blog post. All the pics are so nice, Last time I saw the little 5 count packs of cigs was about 5 years ago and they were giving them as samples to try to gert people to swich their brand. ;-) Flaurella ~

    1. DH has also operated the one they had at his job. When he was very young he was lunch break assistant, so he pointed it out and thought it was fun to see. They still have it in the basement, I wonder if they don't have the heart to trash it. All the photos are taken with my smartphone, Nokia Lumia 1020. Normally, I hate smartphone photos, but my Lumia is a camera with a phone, as son says. :)
