Can you help me find one? For someone born in 1953... The kind you see in nice garden centres! Just can't find online...

London based " I 'll tell your mother Bill Bailey" was also good and the " call the midwife " book Jenny Lee were set in early 50s . Don't know about photo type books but there must be some out there .
