A 1950’s Childhood Special Edition Paperback Book


Do you remember Pathé News? Taking the train to the seaside? The purple stains of iodine on the knees of boys in short trousers? Knitted bathing costumes? Then chances are you were born in or around 1950. To the young people of today, the 1950s seems like another age. But for those born around then, this era of childhood seems like yesterday.

From waking up to ice on the inside of the windows to bathing in a tin bath by the fire and spoonfuls of cod liver oil, home life was very different to today. Capturing all aspects of a 1950s childhood – home life, games and hobbies, holidays, music and fashion, and more – bestselling author Paul Feeney spins his memories and delightful illustrations into a compendium that will jog priceless memories for all who grew up in post-war Britain.
