Popular Culture: 1940-1959 by Nick Hunter

What was skiffle ? How did technology change the look and design of everyday things during the 1940s and 1950s? With Disney and Elvis Presley, Teddy Boys and Marilyn Monroe, this was the era where popular culture really came into its own! It was also the era where a TV set might find its home in the living room of an average family. Find out how fashion, music, and movies changed and developed after WWII, and how the Cold War also had an influence.
