Gravel Art: Favorite Hobby in the 1950s and 1960s...Now on Facebook
Glenn Waters has taken the time to establish both a website and Facebook Page dedicated to the popular 1950s and 1960s hobby of making Gravel and stone Wall Decor artwork. These kits kept many postwar dads and moms busy. My dad has made the Queen and King below and Im wondering if this image I came across could actually be dad'd work. I also fondly remember a set of parrots he carefully crafted at our dinette table.
Popular Gravel kit themes were exotic birds, Geisha girls, poodles, jesters, Asian landscapes, musical instruments, florals, seascapes, religious themes, wine and fruit and more. Also check out: https://www.pinterest.com/jolene2628/gravel-art/
