Photographs Found: A Personal Memoir of 1960s Britain

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)


Starting at the age of nine, Basil Hyman (b. 1936) has taken hundreds of photographs of everyday life in Britain.

In Photographs Found Basil looks back to the “swinging sixties” of his youth with an array of images that capture everything from sports to travel to leisure and beauty contests as well as previously unpublished informal shots of his friend and relative Brian Epstein, an iconic 60s figure and the Beatles’ first manager, widely credited with shaping their early success. With a short introduction by Hyman to put his pictures and memorabilia in context, Photographs Found presents the sixties, a time of dramatic social change in Britain and around the world. This nostalgic compendium lets the photographs themselves tell the story, and the fascinating ephemera and memorabilia, some of it provided in facsimile format, evokes what is now a bygone era.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    Contains some previously unpublished photographs (from a family album it seems) of Brian Epstein. It also includes numerous inserts, mostly of advertising material that appeared in magazines in the 1950s – 1960s period. It is almost home-made in its feel and presentation and I appreciate it very much.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    I’m so excited about this book. It’s beautiful.

    Photographs Found is not only for admirers of the author’s cousin ~ the amazing entrepreneur Brian Epstein (“The Man Who Made The Beatles”) ~ but also for ALL people loving the England of the Swinging Sixties. This is seen through the eyes and lens of one who knew it well, and lived through it.

    You’ll be sorry if you let this one get away. …And I’ll just bet you can think of someone in YOUR life who would treasure this book as a gift!
