                      Pylons and Birds Eye: Women's Institute scrapbooks This paper centres on a set of scrapbooks created by the rural women’s organisation the Women’s Institute. They were made in 1965 by WI’s all over the country to celebrate the organisation’s Golden Jubilee, and were intended to provide a snapshot of village life at that moment. The books reveal something of the complexity of how modernity has been felt in rural places, evidencing dramatic yet uneven changes in the landscape, in consumption and in the home.
