Brave New Britain

'Brave New Britain' is a fascinating record of post-war life from The Francis Frith Collection. From austerity and prefabs to rock 'n' roll and holiday camps, revisit the heady days of the 1950s and 60s in the pages of this fascinating and colourful book. In 1953 a national newspaper crowed to its readers: 'All This - and Everest too!' Britain was on top of the world, enjoying not only the achievements of the mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary in scaling the world's highest peak, but also celebrating the new Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation. But the post-war years were also times of austerity and sometimes painful change. The stunning archive photographs in 'Brave New Britain' reveal the changing face of British life in the 1950s and 60s. They show how a country that had won the war now went about winning the peace, ushering an age of opportunity, equality and prosperity, and banishing memories of pre-war hardship. As well as being a delight for the nostalgic and a superb picture book, 'Brave New Britain' is indispensable reading for everybody who is interested in how we became the way we are.
