Let me recommend......
This DVD is a compliation of short films produced the the Rank Organisation between 1959 and 1969, and originally shown in Cinemas. The topics are diverse - Coffee bars to the Fire Brigade, Gentlemen's Clubs to the Tower of London. 14 films in all and a fabulous look at a London that is long gone. And the commentary on In Gear which is the one about Kings Road/Carnaby Street fashion is hilarious - so very very prim and disapproving.
A beautifully illustrated bokk published by the V&A Museum looks at Paris and London couture between 1947 and 1957, with chapters on Dior, English tailoring, the way the houses worked and photography. Sumptuous photography and the paperback is good quality.
Another London-centric DVD this time of documentaries from the war years by the Ministry of Information, the GPO etc etc there's stuff on here I'd been waiting years to see.
