Love history, or know someone that does? A historic newspaper is a fantastic way to celebrate a milestone occasion, like a birthday or anniversary, but is also an incredible gift for someone who loves to learn about the past. Soak up the events that happened in the year with a newspaper from 1949. If this is a gift for someone special, add one of our gift packages to your order and get this delivered right to their door! With a personalised certificate of authenticity, this is a completely unique, unusual and extremely thoughtful present.
The year 1949 marks the end of the Great Depression as Britain begins to experience some postwar prosperity. The Second World war is over, so Britain, and the world, can begin to rebuild and prosper. In the beginning of the year, clothes rationing officially ends and Harry Truman begins his term as the President of the United States. The 1949 headlines will also discuss the official formation of NATO, the State of Vietnam, the Republic of Ireland and the Council of Europe.
After years of destruction and misery brought about by the Second World War, the year 1949 shows the changing world as well as the global effort to prevent this disruption from reoccurring. With the formation of organisations, councils and new governments, a newspaper from Any Date within the year will describe and demonstrate this post-war prosperity. The year 1949 also brought with it the pop culture society that will dominate the next decade.
