So you were born in 1950. Do you know what else happening in that year? Probably not. Lucky for you Ron Williams has created a book specifically detailing the major Australian-related events that happened throughout the year.

Born in 1950? is one in a series of year-by-year books that highlight the social history happenings in Australia at that time. Arranged chronologically by month, Ron Williams has worked his way through newspapers, magazines and other sources and has come up with most of the major events that occurred during the year.

Each volume in the series describes the happenings that affected people, real people, and is designed to make you remember and wonder at things forgotten.They're also designed to get the older and younger generations talking about the past to rediscover heritage that otherwise would be forgotten. 

In this 1950 volume you'll find that Dugan and Mears used a hacksaw to break out of gaol, robbed banks, shot people and went back to gaol. The War finished five years ago, so it was time to stop petrol rationing. War criminals were hanging out at Nuremberg. Dancing pumps were tripping the light fantastic at The Plaza. Whaling in Australia was big; but square dancing was even bigger. Take a trip back in time and relive the events of a bygone era.
