This volume presents a picture of everyday life in the 20th century - from the late-Victorian era to the new millennium - exploring all aspects of society as reflected in the legacy of packaging, advertising, magazines and newspapers, toys and games, and royal and commemorative memorabilia that has accumulated over the century. A sourcebook of images and anecdotes for those interested in the past, it includes memories of the first Kit-Kat to Beatlemania, Meccano to the Picture Post, Bisto to Barbie and other brand names.

About the Author:

Robert Opie has been collecting packaging, advertising and social history material for over 30 years. His collection now extends to half a million items; part of it was on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London in an exhibition entitled The PackAGE - A Century of Wrapping It Up in 1975. In 1984 he realized his ambition when he established the first museum devoted to the history of advertising and packaging in Gloucester. He has written several books on the subject of packaging and social history including Rule Britannia (1995), Sweet Memories (1988), The Art of the Label (1987), Packaging Sourcebook (1989), Wartime Scrapbook (1989) and 1930s Scrapbook (1997).
