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.

Rome 1960

Another cover from Punch magazine, that for 24 August 1960. Rome are hosting the Olympic Games and George Worsley Adamson (1913-2005) provided the illustration. The USSR headed the medal table with 43 golds; the GB tally was 2, leaving us at 12th in the ranking. I hear that we did a bit better this year.
