Book – The 1930s Scrapbook by Robert Opie

$75.00

Filled to the brim with images, the 1930s Scrapbook overflows with nostalgia for those who remember that extraordinary era. For those who do not, this wealth of imagery provides a vivid insight into a time when sliced bread had just reached the table and Butlin’s holiday camps had recently opened. Life in the 1930s for many was not easy; for others, who had known Victorian times, the pace of change was frightening, and ‘modern’ life led to ‘nerve tension’. Yet change brought a better standard of living and numerous new products helped the daily routine. By the end of the 1930s, television held exciting promise for the future, but a growing tension focused on impending war.
