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.

Full of Eastern promise?

A few adverts from 1960s issues of Autocar magazine, featuring manufacturers from behind the Iron Curtain vying to tempt the decadent western motorist away from their Vauxhalls and Austins; those from Skoda and Wartburg are from 1966, Moskvich from 1969.
