Jam Tomorrow
By

Rating
"Jam Tomorrow" offers a captivating social history of post-war Britain, from 1945-1951, through hundreds of previously unpublished interviews and stunning photography. A poignant and entertaining read, this book draws on individual experiences to revive the struggles, the triumphs and the changes that took place in the years following the Second World War. Although it was a time of hardship, those who lived through the post-war years fondly remember the determination with which people rebuilt their lives and the excitement they experienced as things gradually began to improve. Using information collected from countless interviews over the past 20 years, Tom Quinn brings post-war Britain vividly back to life in this highly evocative trip down memory lane.
