History catches the eye in two packs of photographs from English Heritage. Toys and Games in the Past and Seaside Holidays in the Past each contain eight black-and-white A3 posters featuring scenes from the later Victorian era to the 1950s. Sober-suited families walk along the front at Blackpool or sit on the beach at New Brighton. A crowd of smiling Edwardian tots have fun with an old pam. An array of toy trains and cars from a 1920s shop and a bleak playground from the 1950s will spark lively debates about whether childhood fun has increased or dwindled during the past century. Each pack contains an eight-page teacher's booklet and costs pound;6.99. They can be ordered on 01536 533500. More details on 020 7973 3442 or from the website: www.heritageeducation.net
