150 Years of Britain in Pictures

This fascinating collection of more than 1000 photographs from the Press Association's extensive archives chronicles a century and a half of change, from the early part of the Victorian era to the first decade of a new millennium. The period witnessed massive industrial expansion, political unrest, women's suffrage, the development of the aeroplane, mass unemployment, two world wars, the loss of empire, social reform, the emergence of youth and celebrity cultures, sporting triumphs and disasters, the 'Swinging Sixties', the War on Terror and so much more. Thanks to the photographers of the PA, we can actually see the events that made up life during those 150 years.
