The last 50 years of the millennium brought changes no oracle could have foreseen. In 1950, most families did not own a television set, many did not own a car, and most women did not drive. Segregation was practiced throughout the country, while Americans lived in the shadows of the cold war and nuclear proliferation. Bowling Green in 1950 was a microcosm of America at large. Ladies wore hats and gloves; men wore hats and ties. Businesses prospered and failed, schools were built and students were graduated, political issues were debated, and churches were erected. Bowling Green was Our Town, U.S.A.

About the Author:

Photographer Tommy Hughes captured Bowling Green with the unique perspective of a citizen who dedicated over 50 years to creating images of the town and its people. Authors Amy Hughes Wood and Portia Beck Pennington have compiled a collection that showcases Hughes’s photographic skills and chronicles the developments of a small town coming of age in a postwar world, from the 1950s era of soda shops and railroad travel to the dawn of the computer age.
