Book; A 1950s Childhood. From Tin Baths to Bread and Dripping (Out of stock)
This product is currently sold out.
This book, although small in size, is packed with wonderful memories and stories of a childhood in the 1950s.
Remember bread and dripping, the purple stains of iodine on the knees of boys in short trousers, knitted bathing costumes, going to the pictures, listening to the wireless? Then the chances are you were born in or around 1950. To the young people of today, the 1950s seem like another age.
But for those born around then, this era of childhood feels like yesterday. This delightful collection of photographic memories will appeal to all who grew up in this post-war decade; they include pictures of children enjoying life out on the streets, at home and at school, on holiday and at events. These wonderful period pictures and descriptive captions will bring back this decade of childhood, and jog memories about all aspects of life as it was.
This is a British book but Australia was so closely linked to Britain in those days many of the scenes and almost all the memories could be from any Australian city or country town.
Paul Feeney is the author of several bestselling nostalgia books including A 1950s Childhood In Pictures (also for sale in the Remember When Shop) and A 1960s Childhood. He has also written the bestselling From Ration Book to Ebook which takes a nostalgic look back over the life and times of the post-war baby boomer generation.
