For many the 1930s were a decade of darkness; the Wall Street crash, the Great Depression and finally the outbreak of war in Europe. But it was also a decade of new technology and exciting developments in aviation, radio and film, and a golden age of peace between two world wars.
In this book, Carol Harris looks at what life was like for the ordinary person in Britain at this time; how we lived, worked and shopped, what we drove, watched and listened to.
She looks at the stories and people who made the headlines - the politicians, film stars, dictators - but also at how children played, what people wore and what they ate for dinner.
The book will appeal to those who lived through it, and to those wishing to know more about what life was like for their parents and grand-parents.
