Born In The 40’s


Take a stroll down Memory Lane with this wonderful collection of photographs of Britain in the 1940s, which evokes those Happy Days when everyone pulled together to defeat Hitler and kept smiling despite the hardship of the post-war years. Over 90 photographs are accompanied by a witty and moving commentary describing a decade when the ‘Three Rs’ ruled in every classroom, it was safe for children to play out on the streets and boys had sensible names like James, Robert and John, while the top three names for girls were Mary, Barbara and Patricia. A companion volume to Born in the 50s and Born in the 60s, this is guaranteed to produce a golden glow in every reader, and a perfect family gift.
