Nostalgia Time – Interhome in The Sixties

Looking at our nostalgia series, we are taking a wander back through the 5 decades that Interhome has been around – So it all started in the Swinging Sixties:

Cast your mind back to the Swinging Sixties (if you are old enough!) and try and remember the events and mood of the time that shaped the company that Interhome is today. With Queen Elizabeth II on the throne and Harold Wilson the Prime Minister, these were challenging times for the UK and the rest of the world with the escalation of the Vietnam War and the assassination of Malcolm X. 1965 was the year of:

  • Kray Twins arrested on suspicion of running a protection racket in London
  • The death of Sir Winston Churchill
  • Sir Stanley Matthews plays his final 1st Division game at the age of 50.
  • Opening of the Pennine Way
  • Manchester United wins the Football League First Division and Liverpool the FA Cup.
  • Ronnie Biggs escapes from Wandsworth Prison.
  • Beatles film “Help” debuts in London.
  • Cigarette adverts are banned on UK TV.
  • Post Office Tower opens in London
  • The abolition of the death penalty.
