Toys and Games in the Past and Seaside Holidays in the Past

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
