Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Taking a nostalgic yet irreverent look at Britain in the 1950s, this book begins in the drab atmosphere of the early post-war years. It ends with the brash new world of the swinging sixties, which brought the Beatles, the miniskirt and Mini car. Photographs from the 1950s, along with advertisements and stories from the newspapers of the day, give an entertaining impression of a decade of dramatic change.
