Full Description
The 'Swinging Sixties' were a concoction of many things that brought Britain to the forefront - England winning the World Cup in 1966, mini skirts and mini cars, the Beatles and Twiggy. This was the permissive decade when the contraceptive pill became available, Lady, Private Eye and Oz magazine rattled the cage of authority. Above all, the Sixties will be remembered for the birth of British pop music, Carnaby Street and fashion, a new dance called the twist and the moment in 1963 when President Kennedy was shot.
About the Author
Since the 1970s, Robert Opie has amassed an unrivalled collection of advertisement packaging developed from a need to catalogue how consumer products had evolved since Victorian times. Although the focus of Robert’s research has been the history of supermarket brands, his other interests extend to technology and fashion, as well as recording historic events, major exhibitions and royal occasions. He has become an authority on his subject, appeared on television and radio shows and written twenty books.
