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.

The Jazz musician Humphrey Lyttelton puts his name behind the Technics SL1700 Direct Drive Turntable as seen in Penthouse magazine, issue 12/7 (1977). At this time, he was best-known as the chairman of BBC Radio 4's  'antidote to panel games', I'm Sorry I havn't a Clue, in which capacity he broadcast from 1972, until his death in 2008.
