Birmingham: The Fifties Revisited, Paperback / softback Book

Birmingham: The Fifties Revisited Paperback / softback


The fifties was the decade that saw Birmingham getting back to its feet, shaking off the dust and demolition of the war years and slowly getting on with the business of "Life as normal".

For that reason we've deliberately weighted the book in favour of the later years in order to show a brighter city.

Digging deep, we've discovered quite a few rare items and, bearing in mind your comments, once again included dozens and dozens of those much-loved street scenes.

Lots of firms jostle for position with their advertisements and we do hope that many of our 300+ images ring bells with you.

It seems a miracle to me that so much photographic evidence of Birmingham's past still remains!
