              The train set was the ultimate toy of the 1950s and 1960s. The modelling and accessories could be a bit crude, but the imagination easily made up for what they lacked in detail. Electric train sets had been introduced just before the Second World War, and after a hiatus in produc ...

              By Loveys, Richard

              The Rootes Group once dominated the British motor industry, and its legacy lives on in thousands of carefully maintained cars - most notably Hillmans, Humbers, Singers and Sunbeams. In this book, using beautiful images from the Rootes Archive Centre, Richard Loveys details the Gr ...

              1970s Childhood
               

              1970s Childhood (EPUB ebook)

              By Hollinghurst, Liza

              A 1970s childhood was, for many, a life of happy-go-lucky freedom set against a soundtrack of pop music played on a transistor radio dangling from the handlebars of a Raleigh Chopper. It was a playground battlefield of Sindy versus Action Man or a dexterous display of how to hand ...

              Fashion in the 1970s

              Fashion in the 1970s (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              • $13.25

              The 1970s was a decade of style contrasts. More so than in any other decade, every extreme of fashion was met by an equally trendy opposite reaction. Ankle-length maxi skirts vied for attention with super-short hot-pants. Outfits in vibrant prints and obviously man-made fabrics c ...

              Women in Aviation (EPUB ebook)

              By Hale, Julian

              Amy Johnson and Amelia Earhart may be the most famous trailblazing women within the world of early aviation, but there were many others. From the Wright brothers' sister Katherine, who was awarded the Legion d'honneur, to Mary, Lady Heath, the first woman to pilot a light aircraf ...

              Railway Carriages (EPUB ebook)

              By Bryan, Tim

              Evolving from the horse-drawn stage coaches that they soon eclipsed, railway carriages steadily grew in sophistication so that by the end of the nineteenth century the railway passenger travelled in comfortable rolling stock of a design familiar to many until the 1960s. While mod ...

              By Baker, Eddie

              More complex and imposing than any other vehicle in the British emergency services, the fire engine has a long and interesting history. The earliest water pumps had been developed by the eighteenth century - basic manual pumps that had to be hauled around by people or horses, and ...

              By Hendon, Zoe

              We agonise and argue when choosing it; we admire, compliment and criticise it (or keep politely quiet about it); and the rest of the time we don't even notice it. Wallpaper has been the backdrop to our homes for hundreds of years. It can make a house feel cosy or trendy, modern o ...

              By Owen, Stuart

              Vespa and Lambretta remain the two most iconic motor scooter brands, even four decades after the latter's demise. But what made them such a European sensation in the postwar era? And why were they particularly popular in Britain in the 1950s and '60s? Motor scooter expert Stuart ...

              By Francis, Tiffany

              Ever wondered why a goat's eyes have rectangular pupils? Or what happened to Thor's goats each day after they finished pulling his thunderous chariot? Do goat's milk, cheese and meat represent more ethical food choices than cow and sheep products, and if so, can goat farming play ...
