Loans Box : 1960’s Life

KS 2

Subjects: History, Music, Literacy, Art

1960’s life was the beginning of modern consumerism.  The trend of ‘only buy something when you’ve got the cash’ seemed to disappear. More and more retailers were providing more ways to buy items before you’d paid for them – the credit trend had begun and with it the booming in domestic appliances, pop music, cars and more. This Box is all about the “Swinging 60’s” and is well received by groups of older persons who were children or teenagers during this pivotal era.
