1970s Childhood [9781784423285]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
A 1970s childhood was a decade of happy-go-lucky freedom set against a soundtrack of pop music played on a transistor radio dangling from the handlebars of a Raleigh Chopper. It was a playground battlefield of Sindy versus Action Man or a dexterous display of how to handle Clackers without painfully rapping them across the knuckles. After-school television meant a choice of 'Blue Peter' or 'Magpie', while chewing on an Aztec chocolate bar and flicking through Shoot or Jackie magazine. Yet it was also a decade of strikes, the three-day week and the `winter of discontent' which passed most children by, unless a power cut meant no television. This fully illustrated book is a celebration of that childhood, its highs, lows and scraped knees, that will readily bring back the forgotten memories of a generation that grew up without mobile phones, the internet and 24-hour shopping.
AUTHOR: A child of the 1970s herself, Liza Hollinghurst has had over thirty magazine articles published since 2013, specialising in twentieth-century social history and vintage lifestyle.
