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.

1960s in the City

There four photographs were picked up at a local vintage shop. They were a bit battered, but the subjects made the 50p paid for each worth it. A trip through Photoshop soon tidied them up. They were taken around the City of London during the 1960s, the photographer unknown, the reportage style typical of the time. The top view of three be-suited lads was taken at London Bridge, the second is of a couple of boys closely examining a left hand drive Jaguar E-type on Eastcheap.

The third view shows workers at the top of King William Street, whilst the last shows a lady glancing over at traffic which included London Transport RTW312 on route 6 which I think would date these pictures to 1962-64.
