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.

Pop singer Lulu as photographed by Victor Blackman; from Amateur Photographer, issue dated 17 May 1967. The Daily Express press-man's favourite 'jumping for joy' pose was employed here, but as he commented, with Lulu wearing a mini-skirt, he had to take a number of different shots in order to get one or two that were in good taste. What happened to those that were not, I wonder!
