    Has any country ever changed so much in 60 years? Enchanting photos show what life was like when our Queen came to the throne

    With all eyes on the Jubilee, these enchanting photographs give an insight into what life was like 60 years ago when our Queen came to the throne.
    Discovered in a photographic agency’s archives, they show a world which moved at an entirely different pace. As L. P. Hartley wrote: ‘The past is a foreign country, they do things differently there.’ So true.
    Crime levels were a tenth of today’s. There were only 2.5 million cars on the road, as opposed to 25 million now. Few homes had phones and only a tenth owned fridges. But storing food wasn’t a problem as rationing did not end until July 1954. Shopping was a daily trail around the butcher’s, the baker’s and the greengrocer’s.
    Televisions were rare — there was only one channel — but sales rocketed before June 1953, so the nation could tune into the Coronation.

    Not so today,I'll bet.Just like the USA,Niggers,Indians,Asians,Rag heads and hell knows what else, overrunning literally every part of our once white pristine countries.Still,very nice to see how it was,not so long ago.I'm old enough to say I witnessed it all; and it was far far different than today.White people need to wake up to the facts that we can not return to the past.That; nostalgia is wonderful,but that- if we don't act NOW,our collective futures will look more like Africa and India in the decades to come.These filthy foreign nonwhite creatures are here to stay; and won't go away-voluntarily,and somewhere,somehow white people of America, and all of Europe, need to begin repatriation damn soon-by any means necessary.

    This thread should be stickied. Excellent pictures and a place to post more pictures and related material regarding a time when England was White.

    There ARE rather more flush toilets and better teeth than there were 60 years ago. Worse bread too, but better entrees and salads.

    It's sad. I hope one day they will have the courage or circumstances to preserve part of it.

    I was talking to some older English folks tonight and they completely opened up to me how their country has totally been lost.
    They were impressed with my inside knowledge of their situation there (learning from these forums discussions mostly) and they just started talking in a sad tone actually.

    I told them i lived in England in 95, when it was full of English people. And they started from there..

    Which is true, I lived there 95-96

    Moast people wouldn't understand just how shitty the entire UK has become, until you have actually lived there. It's easy to play the tourist and think the UK is great, just because it's something different than the said persons hometown. The Country is nice, it's just the shit that's in it.
