      minicapt,
      The photos in both links were amazingly interesting. I would have thought, as Bob suggested in his comment, that the street with all the moving trucks was Levittown. I didn’t realize that developments were so similar from one coast to the other. The pictures of what each family needed (the lawn filled with appliances) surprised me as did the numbers of salesmen.

      I knew that a quick transformation had turned the auto assembly plants into a war machine but seeing it made it even more unbelievable.
