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.

Nottingham Trade Exhibition 1949

I recently acquired a little 96 page guide to the City of Nottingham Trade Exhibition, which took place at Broad Marsh, between 27 June and 2 July 1949. Here is the cover, appropriately featuring Robin Hood, followed by a selection of period adverts.
