Here's one for you GB I noticed on the opposite page - a beach in the mountains, warm enough to swim in.?!?, And an all in holiday package for £30 inc. travel costs!

I always thought you were cheap :P

Nice find, Herc!

I like the idea of Switzerland being the "playground of Europe" . Maybe for investment bankers and tax evaders. :D
The airline doesn't exist anymore. The grounding happened 25 years ago. It was our equivalent to the end of The Lehman Brothers. They even made a film about it.
I only swam in a mountain lake once during a school excursion about 30 years ago. It was so freezing my family jewels still haven't recovered from this event.

The days of innocence, before the Yanks hijacked perfectly good English words, and I used to love Spangles - I remember them in so many other flavours too, such as Old English, mint, and you could get tubes of just one flavour.

Sadly, all gone. Those sweets, and perfectly good words.

1977

Ah, the stretched Morris Minor; you don't see a lot of that variety surviving.....

This brings back memories of my days in photographic retail - 1969

She's taking the photo with her £500+ Leica M3

You do know its no longer "the love that dare not speak its name," right?
