5.0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic pictorial record of the last 150 years!, 3 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 150 Years of Britain in Pictures (Hardcover)
Only aware of this book as it was recommended to me by Amazon based on previous purchases I had made.
From what I could see on line I decided it might be suitable as a Christmas gift for one of the family who is notoriously difficult to buy for.
Do not regret this purchase as it is fantastic. The sort of book that you can dip in & out of & always find something to interest or amuse you.
It is simply a huge collection of pictures of Britain from 1860 onwards taken from the press associations archives.
Each picture is dated & there is a small amount of accompanying text explaining what the picture is showing.
It chronicles important news stories from over the years & builds up a fascinating record of how life in Britain has changed over this time.
It obviously starts with black & white pictures & the first coloured ones appear in 1963.
Covering 603 pages it will take quite a while to look through. I will definately be buying at least one additional copy of this book as I think anyone would be thrilled to receive it as a gift.
Highly recommended.
