The Macallan Fine & Rare 1952

1952

THE YEAR THAT WAS

The missionary surgeon, Albert Schweitzer, won the Nobel Peace Prize this year, while a vaccine for polio was developed by Dr Jonas Salk. The US Navy began construction of the first nuclear submarine, the ‘Nautilus’, whilst Britain developed its own atomic bomb. Londoners said goodbye to an era with the last tram ride, as the average weekly wage in the UK rose to £7.58.
