The technology we all enjoy today including DVDs, MP3s, LCD TVs, the internet and mobile phones, were unheard of in the 1960s.

People still went on holday in England, but
not many went
abroad. The first picture is of a typical holiday at Butlins.

People still shopped locally, a lot of the local shops used to deliver to your door for free. Su
permarkets were a very new thing, but had started to take off, with a greater choice and much better value. Typical supermarkets were Fine Fare, Macfisheries, Tescos, Sainsburys, and Morrisons


  1. Remember Fine Fare well, used to be in the now defunct Petergate in Bradford City Centre, now what about Lion Food Stores and Hillards?
