The story of Australia in the middle decades of the 20th century – from 1930 to 1980 – is one of dramatic contrast; of dark days and light – of economic struggle, anxiety, war and sacrifice, giving way from the 1950s onwards to prosperity, plenty and confidence.

Australian Geographic's 'In Living Memory' surveys these decades with a collection of fascinating, surprising and entertaining photographs of everyday Australian life. Author Alasdair McGregor pictorial history, places the 100s of images in their historical context with details to introduce each of the four chapters – the way we lived, the way we moved, the way we worked and the way we played.

This warmly nostalgic collection will appeal to all ages – those who remember the milkman, the dunny man and the ice chest, and those who cheered on Dennis Lillee’s moustache or took part in the 'bikini wars' on Bondi Beach.

Take a look back a the way Australia was "In Living Memory".

Introduction: The Way We Were
1. The Way We Lived: Our home and what we wore, to our diet and changing beliefs
2. The Way We Worked: Jobs old and new, and the changing role of women
3. The Way We Played: Public entertainment, a sunny outdoor lifestyle and our national obsession with sport
4. The Way We Moved: The dominance of the private motor car and the decline of mass transportation
