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.

And now in colour.......

The postman brought another bundle of 1950s Blighty magazines yesterday. These are from 1955 onwards and now sport a colour pin up on the cover (and still cost sixpence!).

All of the models featured, Molly Stevens, Jeanette Pearce, Margaret Simons and Toni Dais, hoped, as they say inside the magazine, to break into show business. Sadly, it seems that none got very far, at least under these names.
