1950s: An Utterly Exasperated HIstory of Modern Britain | [John O'Farrell]

1950s: An Utterly Exasperated HIstory of Modern Britain

The 1950s was an era viewed by many Britons to be a Golden Age; in fact, the Isle of Wight liked it so much they decided to stay there. With the end of rationing, the increase in availability of consumer goods and the money with which to buy it, Britain rushed out to purchase luxuries like TVs, fridges and its first nuclear deterrent (though their pocket money couldn’t quite stretch to it). The teenager was also invented somewhere in the United States, causing mass panic across vast swathes of suburban England.
