The 1950s was an era viewed by many Britons to be a Golden Age; in fact, the Isle of Wight liked it so much they decided to stay there.
With the end of rationing, the increase in availability of consumer goods, and the money with which to buy it, Britain rushed out to purchase luxuries like TVs, fridges, and its first nuclear deterrent (though their pocket money couldn't quite stretch to it). The teenager was also invented somewhere in the United States, causing mass panic across vast swathes of suburban England.

This humours take on the 1950's will be well known to those of us of a certain age, whilst bringing a new slant on history to those younger. Not quite "I split my sides laughing " but more dry witty humour. Good book I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
