Sometimes life drifts past so quickly you don't notice when institutions pass from being "cutting edge" to become a nostalgia fest - perhaps it's a sign of getting old?
I can remember when the concept of looking through a very large book of lovely things and then going into a retail shop and having those lovely things appear through a serving hatch as if by magic was almost science fiction. Obviously the lovely things didn't look quite as wonderful when you got them home but that used to happen in a lot of areas of life.
It came as a surprise to find last week that Mr Anthony Voz has scanned the entire 1985 Spring/Summer Argos Catalogue and it has made the transition into historical nostalgia. It was also a big surprise to find just how many of my brain cells have been filled up with details of the lovely items for the last 25 years when they could have been defragged and put to more creative use.
I made a beeline for the photography and computer pages which I found I knew virtually by heart. I'd be interested to hear which pages YOU go straight for? (There are 5 index pages jam packed with stuff starting here).
Or perhaps you aren't quite as excited as me about the whole thing or quite so far up the autism scale?
