We mostly see the
 east side of the city,
 from the perspective
 of the Greasers.
Fashion
During the time period
of the novel, Soc
“types” would wear
madras shirts and
khakis. You can see
an example of typical
clothing below.

                             Hair Grease   boys who emulated
                                           the free and
                                           uncontrolled lifestyle
                                           Dean seemed to live.
Music and Film
     Here are some images of popular artists and movies.




Elvis Presley   The Beatles


                                Beach movies



                                                Paul Newman
         The Beach Boys
Drive-ins
Watching
movies at the
drive-in theatre
was a popular
thing to do,
especially for
teenagers.
The car culture
was a big part
of society.
You’ll notice
that cars are
often mentioned
in the novel.
Cars
Here are two cars and a
gas station that are
mentioned in the novel.




                                 Chevy Corvair




     1965 Ford Mustang                 DX Gas Station
Drive-in Restaurants
These restaurants were a typical place to take a date. They were
also where gangs hung out.
The American Dream
Happiness for the characters of The Outsiders was a girl, a
car, some money, a strong group of friends, and probably an
ice-cold bottle of soda.
How much has changed?
Now we will look at few more images of the 1960s
culture while listening to some music of the decade.


Your assignment tonight will be to bring in a picture
and song reminiscent of the time period.




                           QuickTime™ and a
