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.

Making car wax sexy
More dubious advertising from the 1970s; this from Popular Motoring magazine for September 1972. The model is believed to be Vivien Neves, who unfortunately died following a long battle with multiple sclerosis in 2002 aged only 54. She famously upset 'Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells' by appearing nude, in a full page advert for Fisons in The Times newspaper in 1971.
