Nostalgia Central is the work of David Turner. Born in Yorkshire, England, in 1961, David has been obsessed with music, movies, TV and pop culture from an early age and created Nostalgia Central in 1998 as a personal online “scrapbook.”
It was intended as a recollection of things that were either personal favourites or which were particularly representative of the era – without necessarily being critically acclaimed.
At that time, there wasn’t much quality nostalgic content on the Internet – and besides, he thought it would be a good hobby.
By 2001, Nostalgia Central housed close to 10,000 articles and 200MB of images and was a comprehensive online guide to five decades of Pop Culture, Television, Music, Movies and Social History.
So much for the hobby!
The intention is for Nostalgia Central to be a giant online scrapbook looking back at the music, films, television, pop culture and social history of the last five decades of the 20th century.
Whether you are looking for reference material or simply entertainment, if it’s from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s or 1990s, you will find it here.
You can use Nostalgia Central like a travel guide, a library or – if you want to do yourself some permanent damage – it can be read end-to-end like a long, long, bizarre story.
It is full of photographs and images, incidents and anecdotes, facts and figures, which will strike a light in the memory of anyone who lived through these decades, hopefully evoking all kinds of half-forgotten experiences and memories. For those born later, it’s a travel guide to the past. A ticket to the time machine, if you like.
Nostalgia Central is updated on a daily basis, but it is still just a hobby and generates no income.
