I was interested in the history of my house, and what it would have looked like inside when it was built, and my search of Amazon led me to this book. It's a large but slim hardback, with hundreds of pictures of products from the 1930s and a tiny bit of background information on the events of the decade. I found it fascinating, as this is an era that I know nothing about beyond watching Poirot on TV and studying the beginning of WWII at school. The history of ordinary people's everyday lives has always interested me more than that of celebrities or politics, so I've spent several hours immersed in this book. I notice something new every time I open it, and the glimpse into the lives of ordinary people through the products they used and the adverts they saw is incredible. I rather like that there is no commentary on the images; the interpretation is left entirely to the reader. Highly recommended if you want to know more about the social history of the UK in the 30s. I'm considering purchasing other books in this series, although there isn't one for my own decade (the 80s) yet.
