The space hopper was a craze that started in the late 1960s.

But what’s by far crazier, is the fact that single female women still needed a male guarantor to buy a home of their own.

So, Teachers Building Society launched in 1966 and set out to change this. Unbelievably it took until 1975 for this common practice to become outlawed.
