My favourite books 10: Age Of Austerity

Age of Austerity, 1945-1951.  Edited by Michael Sissons and Philip French.

Hodder & Stoughton, 1963; this edition Penguin, 1964.

An early entry into the ground now tilled so effectively by David Kynaston and others.  On the sixtieth anniversary of the Festival of Britain, a look back to the time when we never had it so bad.
