The Broons and Oor Wullie 1950-1959- The Fabulous Fifties
Featuring the cream of The Broons and Oor Wullie stories from The Sunday Post in the 1950's, this volume spans adventures through the decade which saw the end of rationing, the birth of rock 'n' roll, and the space race.
The Broons (Browns) and Oor Wullie (Our Willie) have become Scottish icons and are still running in the paper today, with 100 page collections issued every other year. The Sunday Post was originally not distributed far beyond the publisher D.C. Thomson’s offices in Dundee, but circulation grew rapidly from the 1950s as it spread throughout Scotland and Northern England. The weekly strips have been credited as a contributory factor, but the original brief was to reflect the day to day lives of the average Dundonian and to give them a laugh every week.
