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.

Scanning an old calender of railway posters recently, the one featuring Shrewsbury looked strangely familiar. As it turned out, I had an early 1970s guide book with the same illustration on the cover, although I suspect that the original was done in the 1950s. The artist was Jack Merriott (1901-68), a landscape and portrait painter in both oil and watercolour.
