Product description

Reading about history is great. But there’s another really fun way to discover it – looking at pictures! Just as simple as it sounds. Maybe you’re thinking – hang on! How can a picture teach me about history? But the thing is: pictures are jam-packed with clues, if you know how to read them. The people you see. The clothes people wear. The objects around them. Even the types of pictures you’re looking at. Now you’re going to look at photos of home life, from Victorian times to modern Britain. What kinds of families do you see? Do people get richer or poorer? How and why do the houses change over time? Each image is like a code – and you’re going to be the code-breaker!

  • A visual look at British life from Victorian times to today
  • Illustrated with fascinating photos from the National Archive
  • Encourages children to compare life today with life in the past
  • Includes a big section of questions to ask about each picture
