A Look Back

It's 1952 and Dragnet and The Today Show premiere on NBC, boxer Rocky Marciano KO's Jersey Joe Walcott to capture the heavyweight title, actor Ronald Reagan marries Nancy Davis, legendary Sun Records of Memphis releases the first of many classics, 25,000 fans pack the Cleveland Arena for the Moondog Coronation Ball, the first rock & roll concert, Mr. Potato Head is the first toy advertised on TV, Mad Magazine debuts, the first fake fingernails are sold, Satchel Paige becomes oldest hurler to sling a shut-out at 47, the New York Yankees tie their World Series consecutive win record with number 4 and this is a postcard of Nelson's Good Food Restaurant along US 301.
