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.

Yardley by Emett

I don't think that Rowland Emett produced many drawings for advertisements. This is the only one that I have come across so far, for Yardley lavender products, that appeared in the 6 December 1958 issue of Picturegoer magazine, drawn in his typically whimsical style. Shades of the Far Tottering and Oystercreek Railway here!
