Sheer heaven for the 1930's-era Anglophile!, 2005
A visual feast.... Page after image-packed page of popular British culture from the decade between the Roaring 20's and the start of World War II.
The over-size format showcases beautifully preserved artifacts (mostly paper) from Robert Opie's enviable collection. The "Modern" home; glamorous ladies' gowns; newly-affordable autos, ocean cruises and labor-saving home appliances are some of the many aspects of British life illustrated. Photo collages fill every page; combining advertisements, product packages, comic books, brochures, and newspapers. Short sections of accompanying text provide background details and timeline information.
A fantastic record of the decade for history, popular culture and "Brit" enthusiasts!
