Synopsis

Mersey 50s is the first in a new series of publications, a unique collection celebrating the decades - and the people - that made Merseyside the world-famous place it is today. Packed with rare photographs, this 84-page glossy souvenir takes you on a very special journey from 1950 to 1959, exploring Liverpool life during the austerity years. From the glorious Coronation parties, to the closure of the Overhead Railway, the 'Fabulous Fifties' were a time of smiles and tears. Baby Grands reached the end of the line while television and cars inspired a quest for knowledge and travel. Two million Mersey folk joined in the Festival of Britain. Evertonians cheered for the Cannonball Kid while Reds fans hailed the city 'Liddell-pool'. Housewives celebrated the end of rationing, kids enjoyed the sweet sensation of Spangles and Billy Fury took teenagers 'Halfway to Paradise'. With memories and insights from special guest contributors, Mersey 50s is a unique and colourful trip down memory lane. Full of nostalgia for generations of Merseysiders and priced at only GBP4.99, it is an essential read, even if you are too young to remember the era.
