Cambridge in 1945
Updated: May 12, 2020
I’ve just come across this fantastic propaganda film from 1945. It is a detailed picture of life in Cambridge as the second world war came to a close. It’s fascinating to see what’s changed (co-education being the most obvious thing) and what hasn’t (just about everything else!).
Readers of this blog might also be interested to see a clip of Sir Lawrence Bragg, then Cavendish Professor, lecturing – it’s at 5:52.
