We’re trying to create an ever-growing record of 50s reminiscences, so we need YOUR HELP! We would love you to contribute any of your memories from 1950s British life – it could be related to anything at all: your favourite comic, your (measly, if any) pocket money or weeklytreat, your family Sunday lunch… anything at all that has stuck in your memory all this time. Even better, we’d love to see any old pictures you may have. Thisis going to be a pretty fab historical document – you’ll go down in history by contributing!
