The highly successful Retronaut blog looks at the past as it has never been looked at before. Here, in the second of a new series of Retronaut books, the site’s founder, Wolfgang Wild, brings you a thought-provoking collection of photographs from our hidden history. Often witty and entertaining, but also thought-provoking and at times puzzling, the images are chosen to shift our perceptions, making us think-and look again. Discover what our ancestors considered to be good parenting in the days before the ‘care’ was put into childcare, from dangerous sports to the best brand of cigarette for your baby. A perfectly reassuring gift for today’s new parent, this book will also appeal to anyone who likes pictures of babies in sunglasses.
