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. She regularly contributes to Her Vintage Life Magazine and In Retrospect Magazine. Liza's first book, Vintage Knitting was published by Old House in May 2015. She lives in Cheltenham, UK.
