Peace museum

  • Comment

The series of brilliant exhibitions at the Imperial War Museum is set to continue with a review of post-war Britain, 'From the Bomb to the Beatles', being designed by cd Partnership; from hot war through cold war, represented through the lives of a 1945 bride, a 1950s housewife, an immigrant from the Colonies, and a teddy boy. Happily cricket is mentioned, noting that crucial moment in the history of class relationships in Britain when the distinction between 'gentlemen' and 'players' was abolished. English cricket has been going downhill ever since.
