In 'I can remember' our recent history (i.e. World War II onwards) is brought alive through real life experiences and memories of everyday life and a wealth of memorabilia, ephemera and archive photography. Each book is broken up into thematic spreads: school, at home, work, entertainment etc and different voices recall their experiences related to them. There is not one single voice through the book but a variety, so there are is a range of views and a mixture of ages. The back of the books includes a timeline and glossary.

In 'I can remember the 1950s' topics include Rock and Roll, cinema, the festival of Britain, the Coronation and the Cold War. Experiences include a school child, a young housewife, a Jamaican immigrant, a young man, an alternative national service, and a teenage rock and roll fan.
