After ten years of austerity the early 1950s saw rationing draw to an end. Gathered together in this colourful creation of over 1 000 products and images The 1950s Scrapbook conjures up the life and times of the decade. From the Festival of Britain and the Coronation of Elizabeth II to the abundance of toys and television programmes every facet of the era is covered. Memorable and evocative The 1950s Scrapbook illustrates an extraordinary period of British history from rationing to rock’n’roll from Archie Andrews to the Mini Minor. It was a time when self-service shopping was a novelty frozen foods a wonder and detergents like Tide Daz and Omo were the latest whirl for the washing machine. The flowing fashions were styled from nylon or Terylene the space age was full of Dan Dare and children watched the antics of Muffin the Mule Hank or Andy Pandy. Decision time for girls was simpler – would their hair be in pigtails or a pony tail? Taking the best from the Robert Opie Collection The 1950s Scrapbook adds to the different lifestyles portrayed in the companion volumes of The 1930s Scrapbook and The Wartime Scrapbook.
