More About the Author

Basil Hyman was born in Sheffield in 1936. His first commercial photography venture was to get the exclusive rights from Los Angeles of old time photography, on which he thrived with his wife Jane marketing a fantastic small business called Studio 1900.

13 years ago Basil visited New York and became completely obsessed with the recognition of photography in art as shown in museums and all the galleries. He felt there was nowhere enough appreciation and understanding for photography in art in the UK.

His first book "The G-Plan Revolution" with Steven Braggs won the Best Library Wallpaper Awards in 2008. This experience so stimulated Basil Hyman that he followed it up with another successful book "The Lost Album-A Visual History of 1950s Britain''. A further eight books are in planning.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this on the back of the reviews left here and after seeing a (sealed) copy in a bookstore. The cover promised reproduction pieces of ephemera and, as one of the reviews state, "Beautiful reproduction of black and white years of Post-War England..." Sadly, whilst this book is obviously a labour of love for the author, the 'scrapbook' elements are few and many of the pictures frankly quite dull and many blown up so large as to become very grainy and almost unrecognisable. I also think the shots would have benefitted from a more glossy paper as they are most certainly let down by the matt finish giving them a 'shades of grey' look rather than true black and white. It has a very personal feel rather than a history of 1950's Britain which may still appeal to some readers. There are certainly better books out there for a general look and feel of this era. All I can say is try and have a look inside before you buy. I guess this goes for most books of this type. Disappointed.

If like me , you're filled with a golden glow of nostalgia for all things English and can remember back to your early childhood then this book and all its facsimiles will fill you up with the rosy glow that 'black and white Britain' represented back then . Streets without cars , neat haircuts , saucy postcards , Festival of Britain and so on and so forth .
A wonderful single persons view of his England , what we had and what we've lost . Social historians must see this , and so must anyone else who is interested in what us old-fogeys mean when we talk about the good old days .

they used a Marmite coronation booklet for the previous coronation, not the current incumbent - oops! otherwise quite entertaining for those of a certain age or their small relatives.
