You'll love this because...

The biggest events of the 1950s are showcased via Washington Post newspaper articles printed at the time.

  • A collection of original Washington Post reprints from the 1940s
  • Personalized with any Name and Message
  • Gold embossed and handbound in a racing green leatherette cover
  • Ability to emboss your cover for free
  • 12.5” x 15” of tabloid coverage of major events

After the devastation of the Second World War in the previous decade, America found itself embroiled in another two major conflicts in the 1950s: the Cold War and the Korean War. A major event in the former occurred on 5th March 1953, as the leader of the Soviet Union Josef Stalin died from a cerebral haemorrhage aged 74. The Korean War, often known as the “Forgotten War”, began in 1950 and lasted until 1953.

The shape of America as a nation was changing physically, too, with Alaska and Hawaii becoming the 49th and 50th states respectively. Elsewhere in the world, the most noteworthy 50s news story was the beginning of the reign of Elizabeth II, who took her coronation oath as Queen on 2nd June 1953. Personalize your Washington Post Decade book with a name and special message, which will be printed in a certificate on the title page. The name will also be embossed in gold on the cover, making this the perfect gift for any budding historian.

How to Personalize the 1950s Decade Book

I think it’s a lovely little book and…

I think it’s a lovely little book and although I am pleased with it for my grandson I am slightly disappointed that the grammar doesn’t really make sense. It reads in the plural, rather than in the singular as it’s about just my grandson not grandsons Anyway I’m sure when we read it to him we can over come that.
