This text is a record of the changing face of Britain in the 20th century. Each year of the century is illustrated by a single memorable image from The Times's immense photograph archive. A simple text commentary accompanies every picture, placing it deftly in its historical context and highlighting its more unusual features. An extraordinary portrait emerges of a century of turmoil and tension, of prosperity and peace, of rapid change and timelessness. From the palmy days of Edwardian Britain to the excesses of the consumer-driven, computer-dominated 1990s, the variety, the richness and the multifaceted nature of Britain in the 20th century are revealed in 100 arresting images. Fashion, leisure, war, social change, technology, industry, work, children, royalty, politicians, the poor, the rich -- all find their way into this magnificent and unique record of a country and a century.
