Are you ready again for more time
Some years ago, on a bus, the man next to
me, completely out of the blue, said "Hasn't this week gone quickly!"
I thought, then, what a daft remark it was, almost as if he thought we'd shared
all the same experiences. Now, looking back at the 50's, however, it seems as
if we could all say, Didn't that decade go quickly!" So much happened; the
Festival of Britain, the Coronation, Warwickshire winning the Championship and
Villa the Cup, the ascent of Everest, the trad boom and rock and roll, Teddy
boys, Vespas and Lambrettas, bubble-cars, variety and pop stars galore visiting
the city and so on.
In the 50's, the future lay mysteriously ahead. Let's go back in time to remind ourselves of how we looked and behaved and dreamed our dreams.
