BRITAIN IN PICTURES : The 1960s

The Britain in Pictures series presents an important collection of images from the Press Association's unique archive, most of which have lain unseen since they were first used in the newspapers of their day. Each book in the Decades series provides a rare insight into life in Britain: not only the major historical events, but also the smaller things that had equal, if not greater significance for ordinary people.

The 1960s overturned the country's old order and brought in the new as economic boom reverberated: governments fell through scandal; spies were exposed in the heart of the establishment; England won the World Cup; the arts, fashion and entertainment industries burst with new ideas and young people dominated events.

These stories and many more are pictured in this book with almost 300 images hand-picked from the vast archives of the Press Association.
