The 1950s Street

The 1950s street shows an ordinary shopping street, as it was before the supermarkets came to Denmark. Here, there is emphasis on personal service at the counter.

In the 1950s, the first supermarkets with modern self-service saw the light of day in Denmark. Just around the corner the consumer society lurked, where products were manufactured so cheaply that it was not necessary to repair them, if they broke.
