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.

On the beach - Fifties style

Two little adverts for beachwear; a Sabrina one-piece for the ladies and for the chaps, a pair of Pegasus beach shorts featuring ROC-JOC (patented) support....... From She magazine (1956) and a guide to Brixham (1958), respectively. The Sabrina was presumably named after the actress and model of the same name, at that time featuring in films and on the TV in the UK.

  1. This is brilliant! My name is Sabrina, I must have one of those! (Love the swimwear too.)
