Watching the first ever episode of Coronation Street and seeing all the original cast members from Elsie Tanner to Ena Sharples, I found myself feeling incredibly nostalgic – not only because it was in black and white, but because it really highlighted how much the world has changed in my own lifetime.
So, what iconic symbols have reached this landmark 50th anniversary?
Here’s the Fabafterfifty ‘Top Ten’ selection
- Coronation Street
- The Mini
- The Pill
- The Flintstones
- Yuri Gagarin’s flight into space
- Dr Martens boots!
- The Smurfs
- Blue Peter
I wonder if the ipad will still be talked about 50 years from now?
