Description

In 'I can remember' our recent history (i.e. World War II onwards) is brought alive through real life experiences and memories of everyday life and a wealth of memorabilia, ephemera and archive photography. Each book is broken up into thematic spreads: school, at home, work, entertainment etc and different voices recall their experiences related to them. There is not one single voice through the book but a variety, so there are is a range of views and a mixture of ages. The back of the books includes a timeline and glossary. 'I can remember the 1960s' includes growing up as a child of Jamaican immigrants, the 1966 world cup, a coal-mining town in Wales, Scotland in the sixties, Beatles mania, and swinging London and sixties fashions.
