This goes from 1938 to my first couple of years as a tea boy in 1955. From before the outbreak of World War two to the mess of the Suez War. From "Gone with the wind" to Peter Sellers first real film "The Lady Killers".
In 1938 Howard Hughes and four companions flew round the world in three days, 19 hours & 17 minutes in 1955 to A Super Constellation goes from London to Australia in a mean 53 hours either way, fully loaded with passengers, knocking 20 hours off the journey.
Walt Disney just released the full length cartoon of Snow White in '38 & in '55 He opened the first Disneyworld at Anaheim in California.
