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.

Phillips 66

Rooting around in the loft the other day, I came across a broadsheet-size supplement to the Evening Gazette (dated 3 April 1968) marking the formation of the new borough of Teesside, which incorporated Stockton, Middlesbrough, Thornaby, Redcar, Billingham, Eston, Stokesley, Guisborough, Saltburn and Maske. As my wife comes from Stockton, it must have come to us from her family at some time.

Although there is lots to scan, quality is not brilliant, being on newsprint. However, this advert for Phillips 66 petroleum, with it's AEC and Leyland tankers, certainly attracted my attention.
