Perhaps the byword of this era was aspiration. Men desired a motor car or a scooter with a girl on the pillion. Housewives wished for a Kenwood food mixer, a refrigerator for cold foods, or a Colston dish washer – “washing-up has gone for good!” Change was on its way: filter-tipped cigarettes, self-service supermarkets, sugar-coated breakfast cereals, Wagon Wheels, the convenience of instant coffee, and the dramatic new detergent washing powders with vibrant packaging.
Elvis Presley was the singing sensation from the USA, along with Bill Haley, who brought rock ‘n’ roll to Britain’s teenagers. But life in the Fifties could be simply those DIY jobs – would it be Formica or Fablon? For children, collecting Typhoo tea cards was a popular pastime, or reading the Eagle with adventures of Dan Dare ‘pilot of the future’, whose nemesis was the green Mekon – can you find him hiding in the jigsaw?
