This is a fascinating visual record of a decade that saw Britain making the transition from the past to the future. It is a beautiful gift idea on its own, or as part of this popular series. The "Britain in Pictures" series presents an important collection of images from the Press Association's unique archive, most of which have lain unseen since they were first used in the newspapers of their day. The 1950s found the country making the transition from the past to the future. On its farms oxen ploughed beneath the flight paths of passenger jet aircraft, in its cities people rode to work on trams whose electricity was generated by nuclear power stations, and teenagers emerged for the first time with their own fashion, music and culture.
