Review: 1950s Childhood: Spangles, Tiddlywinks and The Clitheroe Kid by Derek Tait

Devon Life reader Emma Hogan, from Exeter, reviews the local author's book
This takes you on a nostalgic journey through Fifties Britain, with chapters covering everything from life at home to memorable personalities of the decade. It perfectly catalogues what it was like to grow up in the 1950s.
Tait writes generally on what life was like for children, but adds a personal touch with the inclusion of family snapshots.
It would make a great gift for anyone wanting to find out how childhood has changed over the years, or for those who fondly remember tin baths.
