Turning 70 is definitely a milestone, which is why 70th birthday gifts should be extra meaningful! An original 1950 newspaper would make a fantastic, sentimental gift for a loved one, letting them look back on popular news headlines in an original newspaper from the year. Your recipient can read about events that happened when they were born and see how they were read by the public at the time. You can choose any Date from 1940, with an unparalleled range of British publications available to order.
This newspaper gift is made even more special since it can be personalised. Your order comes with a Certificate of Authenticity to prove that your newspaper is a genuine original issue, and you can add any Name and Message to appear on the certificate.
After the end of the Great Depression and the Second World War, people were looking forward to a more prosperous time as the 1950s began. It was a time of financial prosperity, technological advancement and patriarchy, and considered a duller decade in the middle of the war torn 40s and swinging 60s.
1950 headlines included the Korean War that began following the separation of the country into North and South during World War II. James Dean also featured in a Pepsi commercial, giving him his big break. It was also the year that the Peak District began Britain’s first national park!
You can personalised your 1950 newspaper with any Name of up to 22 characters, any Occasion of up to 42 characters, and any Message of up to 5 lines with 35 characters per line. This personalisation will appear on the Certificate of Authenticity.
