Decades Discussion Cards are sets of photographic flashcards that introduce or remind people about the famous people, places and events of the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s.

  • A5 discussion cards with an image, related information, & ideas to develop the subject further
  • Effective at stimulating conversation, reminiscence & memory recollection, prompting story telling, or helping with articulation & language skills
  • Two versions available: 50s/60s & 70s/80s

The Decades Discussion Cards are an invaluable tool for tutors, care workers, nurses and occupational therapists working in hospitals, day centres, residential homes or educational settings facilitating the process of reminiscence.

Decades Discussion Cards - 1950s/60s

The 1950s were characterised by a complete shift in lifestyle. Recovery from the aftermath of the Second World War was steady and slow – a time for austerity, rationing, housing shortages and conservative attitudes.

The emergence of a more prosperous society saw an enormous growth in consumer goods and the rise of youth culture linked to styles of music and dress most notably the Teddy Boys with their rockabilly hairstyles and brothel creeper shoes. Fun was in the air. This huge turnaround in finances and lifestyle created opportunities that were to be fully exploited in the 'Swinging 60's'.

Town centres changed in the 60s and bomb damaged cities were replaced by modern visions of the future – not necessarily to everyone's taste.

With new motorways opening, initially with no speed restrictions, there began a monumental rise in car ownership as people enjoyed the freedom of the roads, sadly signalling a decline in rail travel so severe that 25% of the rail network was axed following a damning report by Dr. Beeching.
