ONE HOUR ON LINE TALK WITH OUR MEMBER BARRIE GREENE

---

DESCRIPTION

Some of you have been asking if there is anything new from our member and tour guide Barrie. Well at last it seems he has awoken from his winter and covid slumber and put together a brand new talk about the golden years of post war America.

Whatever happened to............. THE AMERICAN DREAM
===================================================
We always talk about the swinging sixties as the greatest period of youth culture there has ever been. But if one looks closer at those baby boomer years you realise much of the new world that the sixties brought us had its roots in the American life style of the 1950’s. Life in the United states was booming whilst we in Britain struggled to recover from the aftermath of the second world war.

Join Barrie in a journey back to those days looking at the innovations, the cars, the diners and the freedom enjoyed especially by the youth of America. A period now remembered as the The American Dream.

Accompanied by photos and music Barrie tells us how the boom years emerged and later how it all collapsed
as Britain became the centre of the world in the 1960’s

The talk will take about one hour and is full of interesting facts and stories. By the time the talk is finished Barrie will have wishing, just slightly, that you could have been a teenager in say California, or perhaps New York during the golden years of………..The American Dream……

THURSDAY MARCH 4 @ 6.30 PM
Zoom link will e sent on receipt of payment

YOUR HOST IS BARRIE GREENE

Barrie has been leading guided tours around London for many years now and we are very pleased he joined our group a couple of years ago. His tours are full of anecdotes and stories as well as general history He always brings iconic photos to enhance the talks and when possible there will even be music played if it suits the situation. Although sometimes longer than the average walk time goes by in a flash, two hours with Barrie is more a social event than a normal tour.
