About this Item

Light shelf wear only. 192pp. "The single year 1938 marked the end of an era, for the Second World War lies like a chasm between then and now-on this side, the atomic age. On the other the after-glow, the last moment of the last twilight of the Victorian age, when the world was still full of certainties. In this remarkable book Brian Cleeve turns a perceptive eye upon the pre-war world, for nostalgia, for simple entertainment, and to remind those who were there, and show those who were not, what that vanished age was like. Here are the events and politics; the views of people in Britain, Ireland, the Dominions, America; how they lived; the prices of cinema seats and Rembrandts, beer and clothes; the bestselling books and longest-running plays and films; fashions and crimes; the lives of rich and poor; their houses, holidays, food, cars, amusements and much, much more, spun on the thread of a year in which, more than any other, the old order changed." Illustrated with black-and-white photographs throughout text. Bookseller Inventory # 675138
