This book focuses on the period from the mid-1940s to the late 1950s in Australia when the country was emerging from the austerity of WWII. Homemakers of this period enjoyed the time-saving technology that previous generations dreamt about. Mary Murray has selected household hints and snippets from magazines and newspapers of the period, providing insight into the domestic and social life of Australians. Over 200 illustrations are included.
