Powerpoint of pictures from the 50's

Powerpoint of pictures from the 50's

This powerpoint was made by me for a concert my school performed on the 50’s era. It was played in the background as they sang, but is also useful for History lessons and good for discussion about what it was like then and now, whats changed etc. The children find them quite amusing also!
