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.

A selection of adverts for British cars, culled from The Autocar magazine dated 1 November 1946. This appeared to be an issue aimed at attracting exports, hence many of the adverts were in full colour. Others were in black & white, including those for Rolls Royce and Bentley; perhaps they thought that they didn't have to try too hard!
