Many of the homes in West Palm Beach date from the 1950’s and 1960’s when there was a boom in the population which was partly due to the return of many sailors and airmen who had served at Palm Beach Air Force Base during the war. In part, it was also due to that modern miracle of air conditioning, as living in the tropical climate all year round became more acceptable to northerners.
Also becoming popular in new build homes at that time were what is now the ubiquitous sliding glass door. Back in the 50’s they were regarded as very trendy, as were Davy Crockett, the hula hoop, drive-in movies, jukeboxes, and some singer fella called Elvis something or other.

However, today in West Palm Beach the sliding glass doors in many homes are fifty or sixty years old and in no way could they be considered to be trendy any longer.
