Well, its your fault! As soon as "Birmingham
in the Fifties" came out, copies were snapped up (it went into reprint
within a month) and everyone said that the next subject had to be the sixties -
so here it is.
It is easy to dismiss the decade as a period of great liberalism, inspired by an imagined new-found freedom, that would create so much havoc in the years to come; a decade that inspired such phrases as "If you can remember it, you weren't part of it", or John Lennon's "Nothing happened in the sixties except that we all dressed up" - a time when Vivian Stanshall and the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band coined "Cool Britannia", which is still with us today. However, it was far more than just that. Youth seemed to come into its own for the first time, with hair longer, skirts shorter and the Beatles changing popular music forever. In Birmingham it was an era of re-building (although not to everyone's liking) but, despite the impression that everything was changing, there was still a great deal of traditionalism around. All of this, and more is reflected in our book - along with lots and lots of those street scenes that we know mean so much to you.
