There was a goodly collection got this week, but to enable the gems to shine I will just show one special collection. The others can wait for a "dry" week.
I happened upon these booklets that contain a collection of cards that you had to collect. Well, not necessarily 'you' but to quote:
"Just ask Dad to get you a new card every yime he visits his Shell Service Station"
Not your parents, but Dad! I am not sure of the year of these books, but thank goodness we have come so far. Yes, I know that often there was one car in the family, and women didn't drive, but thanks goodness for the women who did! Who were independent and had a bit of gumption. (I will stop myself now before I turn into Germaine Greer!)
For those who have not achieved the necessary years to have these as memories, they were kind of like educational Tacos. Everyone had them, Weet-bix, petrol stations, cigarette packets. It's funny now looking back, that cigarette companies were targeting children from an early age including cards to collect within their packaging. Nowadays we can't even have the cigarettes on display! (It is just interesting how society's values change over a period of time)
Pop over to Sophies and see what wonderful finds everone else has come up with this week. xxNick
