Do you remember flares, cheesecloth shirts and chopper bikes? What about space hoppers? If you do, then it sounds like you were lucky enough to grow up during the 1970s. Who could forget all the glam rock bands of that era, like Slade, Wizard and Mud, or singers like Alvin Stardust, Marc Bolan and David Bowie? What about those wonderful TV shows like Starsky and Hutch, Kojak and Happy Days? Fashion included platform shoes (we all had a pair), flared trousers, brightly patterned shirts with huge collars and colourful kipper ties. And everyone remembers preparing for power cuts and that long, hot summer of 1976. For anyone looking to relive their youth in the 1970s, this compendium of memories is just the ticket. Following on from the wildly popular A 1950s Childhood and A 1960s Childhood, those of us from this memorable decade can also take a nostalgic and hilarious trip down memory lane.
