Uncovered!

A recently uncovered window in the High Street of Lyme Regis. The magazine pages and adverts that cover each pane of glass date when it was blocked! It would be a shame to replace it. If you are interested, take a closer look and see what you remember!

Photo taken from across a busy road, so not as sharp as I would have liked.

They have rarity value. It surely would be a shame, Rosalyn!

Great that these have been preserved. Several of the trade names are still current, but at a guess I'd put these at the late 1950s.

Une belle découverte à préserver, certains produits ont bien traversé le temps ce qui nous ramène à nos jeunes années !
Bonne journée Rosa.

Well that was a bit of fun, as mentioned above several of the trade names are still in use, but I'm putting them as early fifties. That Morris car might be the best indicator of date, I cannot see from the detail what model it is, someone will know. Could be a Morris Minor.

The old adverts are a joy, so different from today. I love the window and do hope it will stay that way.

These are fantastic Rosa............what a great find............an amazing collection of vintage advertisements!

The ones that strike a chord with me are the adverts for Guiness, Martini, OMO, Schweppes and Murraymints, OK Sauce, Scots Porridge Oats and I vaguely remember the Post magazine.

This should be saved for posterity and I guess a local museum would love the whole window! A cracking shot..!!

Truly extraordinary photo!
An example of "advertising archaeology"....
There are brands that were also known in Italy when I was a child; a real blast from the past....
Warm greetings
