This is a 3 disc set containing images in .TN3 format on the
subject of the Home Front in the 2nd World War.
The images come mainly from newspapers of the war years, 1939-45
and give a real flavour and idea of what life in wartime Britain
The images may be viewed using the ARTGALLERY pd programme on disc
A. This disc also contains the TCOS pd database. To run the
programme click on the file TCOS.PRG. When the main database
programme is loaded select the file WAR.SYS and load it into the
database. The WAR.SYS file contains a description of the image
files, a brief account of life on the Home Front and details of
how the teaching of the 2nd World war fits into the National
Curriculum (England) for history.
The image files were scanned using the Golden Image hand scanner
and retouched using Touch Up and Canvas art packages.
I hope that this disc set will prove useful to teachers, pupils
and those just interested in the history of this period.
