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.
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.
