What goes pop!

Australians have long been eager consumers of popular culture, and libraries are important storehouses of what goes pop with people and their communities.

Pop culture covers the galaxy of relationships, events and rituals that take place in our everyday lives: the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the technology we use, the music we listen to, what we read and the way we use our leisure time.

Selected from the Library’s photographic collections, this display takes a whistle-stop tour through some of the most important cultural changes of the 20th century. It offers a window on the world of post-war popular culture for younger generations and a trip down memory lane for those who lived through it.

This display is part of the History Council of NSW’s History Week theme ‘Pop!’
