Hovis: 122 Years

Doesn’t this advert give just so much to talk about in classes… it was a great introduction to my module on “20th Century British History” – interesting to see what events they pick out as worthy of note:

  • Titanic
  • Suffragettes
  • First World War (how young are those soldiers?)
  • Motor Car
  • Second World War: The Blitz, Churchill “We shall fight on the beaches”, a Spitfire
  • Street Party (Victory Celebrations or the 1953 Coronation?)
  • 1960s, including the 1966 celebrations
  • 1980s Miners Strike
  • Millennium Celebrations

By Second World War Posters
