This critically acclaimed book is without doubt the best ever companion to everything related to the year 1969. Beautifully written and researched, it looks - month by month - at the leading news headlines and some long forgotten stories, as well as politics, fashion, cinema, music, sport and much more. The book is also packed with reproductions of stunning rare
advertisements, which give a fascinating snapshot of the popular holiday destinations, cars, airlines, supermarkets and much more.
Welcome to 1969. It was a world of Harold Wilson, Boeing 747's, Concorde, Vietnam, Woolworths, Dagenham Car workers strike, Radio Luxembourg, Man stepping on the Moon, Richard Nixon, Top of the Pops, Anti-war demos, Tesco discount stamps, Cold War tensions, Northern Ireland troubles, North Sea Gas and much more... In the charts the Beatles, Archie's, Rolling Stones and Bobbie Gentry all racked up hits.and on TV (which went colour in this year) Blue Peter and Coronation Street.
For those curios about how the world looked in 1969 - or a birthday gift for some one born in that year - 'That was 1969' - is the absolute perfect gift"
