Things Only Baby Boomers Will Remember

Try Out The Boomer Quiz and Test Your Skill at History!

Boomers have seen massive changes over the course of a lifetime.

There’s no doubt about it: Baby boomers have seen some incredible changes over the course of a lifetime.

Made up of those born between 1946 and 1964, this generation was named after the “boom” in birth rates after World War II, when soldiers coming home from the war settled down and raised families. For a long time, the baby boomers also held the title of America’s largest generation, with a peak of nearly 79 million boomers in the U.S. in 1999 — that is, until their own children (a.k.a the millennial generation!) surpassed them in numbers in the summer of 2019.

Still, the baby boomers — while no longer the biggest generation in the U.S. — have had a remarkable influence over culture today. From important events in the ’60s and ’70s to unbelievable innovations in communication, technology and media, this generation has truly seen it all — and has influenced so many aspects of American culture as we know it. Because even while some boomer touchstones have gone the way of the buggy whip (remember phone booths, anyone?), others, like drive-in movies and vinyl records, are currently making a huge comeback. Here are 40 bits of history, media milestones and other artifacts of cultural ephemera that you’ll only remember if you’re a boomer.

Leave me a comment below. I promise to read every single one and share a few in a post I am working on for next week.
