This day in history, April 22nd,1944, an airman shared a joke with his girlfriend as they danced. It’s a jovial moment of romantic bliss, despite the ongoing international war. Couples like this would marry and create the post-war baby boom culture during the Cold War era. Their years of rationing transitioned to a consumer culture to build nuclear families in the suburbs.
