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.

Fairey Gannet

The carrier borne Fairey Gannet, used primarily in submarine detection, went into production in 1953, hence the attention in the Navy press at the time. Around 350 had been built by 1959, mainly for the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm. A number have survived, in the UK, Germany, Australia and elsewhere.

These are from The Navy magazine, December 1952 and May 1953.
