School Songs and Gymslips
Grammar Schools in the 1950s and 1960s
With tales from the days of indoor sandals and navy knickers, Latin verbs and transistor radios, semolina pudding and O Levels, this light-hearted social history is based on the experiences of pupils from 18 schools around the country and describes how things were for grammar school girls – at school and at home – between about 1955 and 1965.
The Poor Man's Picture Gallery
Stereoscopy Versus Paintings in the Victorian Era
Popular Victorian paintings were often reproduced as engravings, but photographers also recreated the scenes with actors, to produce stereoscopic cards for commercial sale. Originally published to accompany the exhibition at the Tate Gallery, this slipcased volume explores the relationship between paintings, popular illustrations and cartoons (such as those published in Punch), and 3D stereo photographs. It also includes a stereoscope to view the examples, which are mainly drawn from the collection of Queen guitarist Brian May.
