The Fifties. A time when employment was stable and austerity had been swept away and the future looked bright.
After the harsh restrictions of wartime, the world was finally starting to enjoy the good life – which included holidays, television and even a family car!
The 1950s saw the birth of the teenager, rock and roll and Elvis Presley’s music career.
Now a special exhibition dedicated to Chester during this decade is set to open at the city’s History and Heritage Museum.
That’ll Be The Day looks at the busy, thriving streets, the dance halls, the parties and the events which signified the dawning of a bright, shiny new age.
If you have any photographs to add to the display, which will run from March 31–July 4, 31 March-4 July, drop them into the museum at St Michael's Church, Bridge Street.
All photographs will be carefully scanned and returned.
A corresponding walk, Memories are Made of This will take place on Wednesday May 7 from 1.30pm.
During the walk you will be able to reminisce about the buildings you would have seen, what you would have done and how people amused themselves back in the 1950s.
Booking is essential and costs £5. Call 01244 972210 for more details.
