Book Description

1 April 2014
Do you remember Pathé News? Taking the train to the seaside? The purple stains of iodine on the knees of boys in short trousers? Knitted bathing costumes? 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 and bombsites, 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 in post-war Britain. Paul Feeney is the author of bestselling nostalgia books A 1950s Childhood and A 1960s Childhood (The History Press). He has also written the hugely popular From Ration Book to Ebook (The History Press), which takes a nostalgic look back over the life and times of the post-war baby boomer generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Memories 30 Sep 2014
By ACB(swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Paul Fenney's introduction to this marvellous book is a story in itself. He rightly pays tributes to the photographers who created the pictures that follow. They are accompanied by comments that are nostalgic but also personal memories of days long gone. I bought this for my older brother who taught me much that this book reminds me of. Every photograph has it's own moment that will pour out floods of reminiscences. It is very relevant to many and those whose memories we still retain.

Much better than I expected it to be. A lot of the photos were taken in the streets where I grew up. In fact, I think I'm actually in one of them
