Summary
The story of Australia in the middle decades of the 20th century - from 1930 to 1980 - is one of dramatic contrast; of dark days and light - of economic struggle, anxiety, war and sacrifice, giving way from the 1950s onwards to prosperity, plenty and confidence. Australian Geographic's In Living Memory surveys these decades with a collection of fascinating, surprising and entertaining photographs of everyday Australian life. Author Alasdair McGregor places the images in their historical context with a thoughtful essay to introduce each of the four chapters - the way we lived, the way we moved, the way we worked and the way we played. This warmly nostalgic collection will appeal to all ages - those who remember the milkman, the dunny man and the ice chest, and those who cheered on Dennis Lillee's moustache or took part in the 'bikini wars' on Bondi Beach
