What was life like for young people in the 1960’s? It depended on who you mixed with.
My life revolved round home, school and church and even at 18 the worst swear word I knew was ‘bloody.’ Social life was limited to sport and the theatre and listening to records in a friend’s house. Girls dreamed of marriage and a family in spite of new employment opportunities. Their ideal men were Gregory Peck, Kirk Douglas or James Dean.
However, it was a time of excitement with the hint of the freedoms that were to follow and I am glad I was there to experience it.
