Take a trip dowm memory lane.
And, in this case, it’s a very long a winding lane indeed, as today’s retro picture gallery takes us all the way back to 1950. A different time altogether, 1950 is now 73 years in the past, meaning that a five-year-old just starting to make memories of that time would now be almost 80. Check out our best archive images of that heady era.
