This wonderfully warm nostalgic collection will appeal to all ages - those who remember the milkman, the dunny man and the ice chest, and those who cheered on Dennis Lillee's moustache or took part in the 'bikini wars' on Bondi Beach.
The story of Australia in the middle decades of the 20th century, from 1930 to 1980 and encompassing the Baby Boomer years, is one of dramatic contrast; of dark days and light - of economic struggle, anxiety, war and sacrifice, giving way from the 1950s onwards to prosperity, plenty and confidence.
Australian Geographic's In Living Memory surveys these decades with a collection of fascinating, surprising and entertaining photographs of everyday Australian life. Author Alasdair McGregor places the images in their historical context with a thoughtful essay to introduce each of the four chapters - the way we lived, the way we moved, the way we worked and the way we played.
Its a big hard cover book, beautifully presented and makes an excellent gift for an older loved one. There is pure magic for nostalgia lovers in over 200 pages and hundreds of carefully selected photos included in this really fantastic book!
A Baby Boomers treasury of memories
