Description

With few TVs, children in the 1950s made their own entertainment: they played conkers, built dens and go-karts, climbed trees and re-enacted fights from the latest cinema blockbuster.

Food was, for many years, still rationed and bought from the local corner shop.

There was no pre-packed food, frozen food or many of the other luxuries that we take for granted today.

Families would gather around the radio to hear the latest dramatizations such as the incredibly popular show Dan Dare, which was sponsored by Horlicks and was first broadcast in 1951.

A trip to the cinema included a Pathe News reel, cartoons and a double bill featuring the latest movies.

Much has changed for children over the years and this book shows what life was once like for the children of the 1950s including home life, school days, music and fashions.
