1950's school geography "Looking at Britain"
I just can't resist old school text books! They are such an amazing source of social history and such nostalgic fun! (Not much 'Health & Safety' going on in this pic. from a 1950's geography book.)
It has the original price list and cost 6s .. 3d so a class set would have been a big purchase. As a pupil in the 50's/60's and subsequently as a teacher I experienced so many of these schemes.
I didn't keep one book for old times' sake but delight in finding them for the shop, especially if I can find an old desk to display them on.
