About Vintage Stuff

The aim of Vintage Stuff is to display some of the ephemera that I have collected, often inadvertently, over the years. I am now deliberately seeking out interesting old adverts, screen shots, leaflets, obscure record covers, picture postcards and illustrations; anything that catches my eye, in fact. They will be mainly, but not exclusively of UK origin (so many vintage blogs appear to be American) and almost always a scan from something that I actually have in my collection, rather than off the net. If you do re-blog, please acknowledge the source. Further stuff, mainly photographs, can be found on my Flickr pages, via the Benny Hill record cover.

Gilbern Cars

An Advert for Fujicolor film dating from 1973 (remember when 100ASA was 'fast'?), appearing in the September issue of Photo Technique magazine. Gilbern Cars didn't last much longer than the advert, going bust some six months later. The car itself is a Mark III Invader model.


  1. I have just spent a happy half hour finding out all about Gilbern Cars...I hadn't heard of them before. Very nice, and a fascinating history. Thanks for alerting me. I used to buy "Photo Technique" too, a long time ago...

    1. I still have a number of the magazines, which I regularly bought at the time. The binding tends to disintegrate however, but does make scanning pages a little easier!
