40 Vintage Color Photographs of Liverpool, UK in the 1950s and 1960s

The 1950s was a time of great change in Britain – especially after the immediate post-war austerity years. In Liverpool, massive slum clearance programmes started to change the face of the city, television began to infiltrate people’s lives, and the consumer society was born, along with the teenager, Teddy Boys and rock ‘n’ roll.

In the city centre, war-damaged buildings were being repaired and new developments were springing up. This collection of 40 color photographs from the 1950s and '60s recalls the unique fashions of the decade, the changing modes of transport, the shops and businesses that were around at this time, as well as the developments that took place in the city during this exciting decade, when anything seemed possible.
