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.

Parky in Penthouse
A rather worried-looking Michael Parkinson in an advert for Black & White whisky from the Christmas 1970 issue of Penthouse magazine. This was a little before he embarked on his career as a chat-show host, which began on the BBC in the following June. Today, he can be found flogging life insurance to the over-50s.
