The 1950s found the country making the transition from the past to the future. On its farms oxen ploughed beneath the flight paths of jet aircraft, in its cities people rode to work on trams whose electricity was generated by nuclear power stations. This is a record of a decade that saw Britain making the transition from past to the future.
These stories and many more are pictured in this book with almost 300 images hand-picked from the vast archives of the Press Association.
