Description

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.
