Synopsis: Hand-picked from the unique archives of the Press Association (Britain's national news agency), this captivating collection of almost nine hundred color and black-and-white images chronicles the ten decades of the twentieth century. Celebrities and politicians, artists, musicians, sportsmen and women, royalty, adventurers, pioneers, criminals, and the ordinary members of the population, are captured in their true context, in events that were originally photographed for the newspapers and magazines of the day. Each decade is introduced with a description of the major trends, events, and developments that occurred, while thoroughly researched captions for each image offer further insight. Over six hundred pages long and with a detailed, cross-referenced index, this title brings us a century of fashion, industry, aviation, architecture, transport, weather, crime, leisure pursuits, war, and technological development. And, with many of the photos unseen since originally published, it offers readers an incredibly rare and rich visual treasure.
