The story of Australia in the middle decades of the 20th century is one of drastic contrast -- of dark days and light: of economic struggle, anxiety, war and sacrifice, giving way from the 1950s onwards to prosperity, plenty and confidence. In Living Memory documents these decades with fascinating, surprising and entertaining photos of everyday life. These images, taken from Australia's top cultural collections, are accompanied by an insightful commentary from award-winning writer and historian Alasdair McGregor. This warmly nostalgic book will appeal to all ages -- those who remember the milkman, the dunny man and the ice man, and those who cheered on Dennis Lillee's moustache or took part in the 'bikini wars' on Bondi Beach."
