More Description

BBC One brought the story of the great British high street to life in a series in which five modern-day shopkeepers and their families were challenged to run their shops exactly as they would have been run in six key eras of British history, from the 1870s to the 1970s. This book accompanies the television series, telling the remarkable story of how the rise and fall of the high street transformed daily lives, touching on the history of technology, family relationships, work, food, fashion, and community that make Britain what it is today. Each chapter vividly retells the story of the evolving high street at that period in time, with special emphasis given to changes in food, fashion, attitudes, jobs, and family life. Illuminated with human interest stories from the programs and illustrated with hundreds of archive photographs, this is the truly fascinating story of British society over the last century as well as a lavish photographic record of the great British high street in its heyday.
