I must admit, I skipped alot of the first part, (I cannot reminisce about how mowers and drills have changed in the last 20 years or so, as I do not have the knowledge of such things).


Things get interesting around page 205 with walkmans etc. Can beat a bit of a chuckle over old sound, vision and video game advertising.
The pictures and hairstyles are brilliant.


I did have to check how much a footspa was though.

I just cant believe that a new 16" colour TV was nearly as expensive a my new 32" flat screen. That's not looking at any inflation either.


At todays prices would make a 16" colour television:

£539!

I had one of those Ferguson TVs ^^. Got it as a display for my Sinclair QL. It was still working fine as my kitchen TV until they turned off analogue, still in the garage waiting to go to the tip.

In those days Ferguson was still a decent brand.

I'm sure I've still got my Commodore 64 and cassette machine somewhere. Should be in the loft.
