Copies Location Call 1 of 1. Golden state, golden youth : the California image in popular culture, Kirse Granat May. Seen as a land of sunshine and opportunity, the Golden State was a mecca for the post-World War II generation, and dreams of the California good life came to dominate the imagination of many Americans in the s and s.
