Lowther Pick - up Leaflet 1949/50

Postby Gmemg » 07 Dec 2013, 14:36

Amongst the large collection of records i bought recently - sadly kept in a very damp cellar - was a large amount of ephemera, some very Old (Berliner Sleeves !) and some not so old - Stacks of "the Gramophone" magazine

i took it all to a paper conservator to be dried carefully and gradually it's all coming back -when it's ready rather than when i want to copy it !

Here's a "Lowther Pick - Up " leaflet from 1949/50 showing how really expensive such stuff was then AND then you had to pay Purchase taz at 66 2/3% !

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
