Book; Born in 1955? What else happened? - Ron Williams


This product is currently sold out.

This is  a series of books about life in Australia – one for each year from 1939. They describe happenings that affected people, real people. The whole series, to coin a modern phrase, is designed to push your buttons, to make you remember and wonder at things forgotten.

The books might just let nostalgia see the light of day, so that oldies and youngies will talk about the past and re-discover a heritage otherwise forgotten. Hopefully, they will spark discussions between generations, and foster the asking and answering of questions that should not remain unanswered.

In 1955, be careful of the demon drink, get your brand new Salk injections against polio, submit your design for the Sydney Opera house now, prime your gelignite for another Redex Trial, and stop your greyhounds killing cats. Princess Margaret shocked the Church, Huxley shocked the Bishops, and our Sundays are far from shocking.

I purchased this book for a friend's birthday. But I don't think I'll bother giving it to him. From start to finish, it's disappointing. The biggest disappointment was; not a single photo in the whole book. They show a couple of enticing photos on the cover and then...... nothing. Definitely works not recommend these books.
