    I am trying to find some of the old photos like from the 1950s and such that depict the Leave It To Beaver style family sitting around the family dinner table and being all happy. what i vision in my head are the paintings/advertisements of such a scene. but i cant for the life of me figure out what that style is called or how to search for it on Google.

    i have found a bunch of Pinup type stuff, and even though that style is right, i am seeking the family dinner setting. or artists who painted or drew that style.

    can anyone point me in the right direction.

    If you can make it to the library, you could search through the old microfilm ads in Time magazine.

    old magazine ads are definitely a great resource.
