BOY'S OWN PAPER - 60 YEARS ON, A MAGAZINE FOR NOSTALGIA BUFFS
In the New Year, The English Eye is going to bring you the best of 'Boy's Own Paper' from 60 years ago, as an online edition.
The pages of BOP were produced from offices in Bouverie Street, London, and provide a fascinating insight into the commercial world of 1953, with adverts for all sorts of stuff long-since disappeared from the shops.
There are ads for stamp approvals, valve radios, wireless telegraphy lessons, Pyruma plastic cement, and many more. There are some familiar names, such as Cadburys chocolate, but they are mostly a pot-pourri of nostalgic delight to relish and enjoy - a closer look at a vanished world.
There's much more to read in the TEE Boy's Own Paper online edition, which will be ready after Christmas.
