This little advert appeared in a guide for ramblers in Leicestershire, which was published in 1936,the year after the store opened. Although the company went into administration in 1991, Leicester continued to trade following a management buyout, but soon closed. The building was demolished in late-1995, although the tower was retained, incorporated into the current building.
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.
