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.

DS meets XK140

A nice pair of automotive imports into the USA in the 1950s; two pictures from men's magazine After Hours, an issue from 1957. The Citroen DS would have been at the beginning of it's popularity, being sold in the States between 1956 and 1972. The Jaguar XK140 (which I am assuming is the correct model, or so my friends on Flickr tell me), was on the way out, being superseded by the XK150 from later in 1957. The model is Grace Curry, of whom I sadly know nothing.
