Mail-order clothing catalogues. Autumn mists have been appearing and there is a new chill in the air. It must be time to begin wearing warmer clothes again. Before the advent of the internet the only alternative to high-street shopping for a warm cardy or thermal long-johns was the mail-order catalogue. Here is a scan from my own collection plus a short strip inspired by these musty old publications.

You can get 70s and 80s mail order catalogues on PDF format from Ebay (or you could last year, anyway)!

Hmm, sounds intriguing. I'll take a look. Thanks, TIW!
