Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The twentieth century — a hundred years of creation and destruction such as mankind has never experienced before. For many people the changes witnessed are limited to recent years, or even the post-war period — but what of those few who've seen it all? In this unique and fascinating book, Hunter Davies tells the life stories of twenty-one people who were born in 1900 — from all walks of life, all parts of the country, all occupations, known and unknown, successful and not so successful, all of whom have survived two world wars and experienced technological changes and new social attitudes which would have been inconceivable to anyone who had lived through any other century. Among them are a miner, a doctor, a factory worker, a West End actress, a Cambridge professor and, of course, the Queen Mother.”
