Take a stroll down Memory Lane with this wonderful collection of photographs from the 1960s, a revolutionary decade when the consumer society arrived on every family's doorstep and London, with it's fashion and music, briefly became to be the centre of the world.
Although published in Britain, Australians born and raised through the 60s will easily identify with this book. Over 90 photographs are accompanied by a witty and moving commentary describing a golden decade when the traditional stiff upper lip gave way to the counter-culture and kids no longer wanted to be like Dad and Mum. This was a time of great change when families started holidaying abroad, mods and rockers fought at seaside resorts and television came to be the centre-piece of many homes.
The Beatles and Rolling Stones changed music (again), the pill introduced the sexual revolution and Baby Boomers began to make their presence felt.
Like sister publications Born in the 40s and Born in the 50s, this book is guaranteed to produce a golden glow in every reader, and is a perfect family gift.
