Welcome to Born in the Fifties

Born in the Fifties is a fun website for everyone Born in the 1950s  that is between 1st January, 1950 and 31st December, 1959. It is also for anyone who loves the 1950s, 60s or 70s as they were the decades we grew up in.

The 1950s were a time when…

  • children played with all the other kids in the street only coming home when it was dark.
  • cars did not have seat belts and most families only owned one.
  • sixpence would buy a big bag of lollies from the corner milk bar
  • TV was new and exciting and not everyone had a set.


It is always fun to find items that bring back memories of growing up in the 50s, 60s and 70s and to share them on Born in the Fifties so other can enjoy them as well.


The latest additions to Born in the Fifties are…

Some old lawnmowers and old wooden children’s high chairs found at an auction recently which can be seen on the Coffee Shop page.

We hope you enjoy Born in the Fifties and visit often.

It is not just for people living in Australia as that is where we are located but for everyone born in this decade.
