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.

Red Star Weekly

I know little about this title, three copies of which I picked up yesterday. Red Star Weekly featured romantic stories aimed, of course, at a female readership, as well as features, reader's letters, cartoons, adverts and agony aunt 'Dear Madge'. It appears to have been published from at least the 1940s until the 1980s, the three copies below dating from 1969. It was published by DC Thomson & Co., from the same stable as The Beano and The Dandy, being of a similar size and quality.
