Norwich in the 1950s: Ten Years That Changed a City
Norwich in 1950 was a different place. Still scarred by war the city was coming to terms with itself. Children played in the rubble of bomb sites, and workers strove to build a prosperous peace on building sites. By the end of the decade the retail heart of the city would be reconstructed, new building programmes would be changing domestic life, and the manufacturing industries would be making world-class products with household names. Birthplace of Barclays, Aviva, Start-Rite and Colmans, the city was ready to embark on another chapter in its long history of commercial and cultural development. From post-war austerity to the threshold of the consumer society, Norwich embraced the 1950s as a decade of change.

Norfolk Broads The Biography
Spread out under the vast Norfolk skies, the Broads have helped define the county. In a panoramic sweep of facts, anecdotes and historical research, Pete Goodrum tells their story.

Norwich in the 1960s: Ten Years That Altered a City
Changed by the 1950s, Norwich was to alter even more during the 1960s. Increased traffic would be met with widened roads and a new flyover, while London Street became pedestrians only. After centuries of trading there the cattle market would move out of the city centre. Bigger buildings changed its skyline and the city gained a university and a new library. THE BEATLES PLAYED HERE, SECRET CHEMICAL TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT THERE AND PLANS TO MODERNISE WERE EVERYWHERE. In this sequel to his hugely popular book Norwich in the 1950s, Pete Goodrum takes a fascinating look at the ten years in which the baby boomers came into their own. As the fifties faded away and sixties style arrived, this was the decade that altered the face of the city.

Norwich in the 1970s: Ten Years in the Life of a City
For some the 1970s meant punk rock and political unrest. For others it was a time of ABBA and affluence. The decade's dual identity was as striking in Norwich as it was nationally. While once-familiar streets were demolished, new buildings sprang up. Different brand names appeared in the city centre and with them came a new era of shopping and eating out. For those who remember the steakhouses and nightclubs, the football and the fashions of the 1970s, this book is a fascinating flashback to a different Norwich. Following his incredibly popular Norwich in the 1950s and Norwich in the 1960s, Pete Goodrum's look at the 1970s shines a light on another decade in the city's history. From the `old' Odeon to the Garlands fire, from Bonds to the `Berni', this is how we lived in Norwich in the 1970s.
