Good Housekeeping The Best of the 1950s Summary


Good Housekeeping The Best of the 1950s: Nostalgic food, fashion, fitness, fiction and features from the classic archives by Good Housekeeping

Good Housekeeping's modern approach to tradition is archetypal of 1950s living as the post-war age of the consumer brought about massive changes in the home. Out with the old and in with the new; the open-plan, fitted kitchen with its brand new appliances was the housewife's domain. A renaissance of 50s-style living is now being witnessed in our ultra-modern society as we see a growing interest in the culture and skills that have been forgotten or recently ignored. Not only in philosophy, but also practically, in fashion, beauty and lifestyle, we are simultaneously looking back and pushing forwards under the influence of this effervescent decade. Lovingly selected from Good Housekeeping's archive, this nostalgic facsimile reproduction of the food, fashion, fiction and fitness features that formed the backbone of Britain's wartime homemaking is sure to delight and inspire. Including stories and adverts, along with cleaning and craft tips for the perfect housewife this is the ultimate window on to domestic life at the time and empathetic history.
