A 1950s Childhood



A 1950s Childhood
'No, you haven't really got the latest six-shooter cap-gun with matching holsters, but you've seen one in your local Woolworths store and you dream of having it, along with all the other trappings of your big-screen cowboy heroes.' Do you remember Pathe News? The purple stains of iodine on the knees of boys in short trousers? Then the chances are you were born in or around 1950. Today the 1950s seems like another age. From waking up to ice on the inside of the windows and washing in a tin bath by the fire, life was very different to today. This delightful compendium of memories will appeal to all who grew up in this post-war decade, whether in town or country, wealth or poverty.
