Southern Region Through the 1950s: Year by Year


    Recording an iconic and important decade in the history of the Southern Region, Michael Hymans offers a unique year-by-year photographic record of the fascinating changes that took place. With an accessible, easy-to-read style, Southern Region Through the 1950s acts as a wonderful introduction, as well as a useful guide for the experienced enthusiast. Touching on a variety of ideas and themes that dominated the decade, including the publication of the Modernisation Plan in 1955 and the continued growth in popularity of the personal automobile and road haulage, this volume utilises a wealth of rare and unpublished photographs in its nostalgic approach to an important decade in the history of the Southern Region.
