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.

Happy 1956.................

Getting into the party spirit, this from the January 1956 issue of Beautiful Britons, which would have been on sale as I was being born..........

A happy 2013 to all who have looked in on this blog over the past year.

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!
