HOME ENTERTAINMENT, ELECTRIC HOUSKEEPING & TERRY TEDDINGTON

 

Today's blog entry is this wonderful photo dating from the late 1950s of the London HMV Oxford Street store, don't you just love the quaint descriptive parlance of "Electric Housekeeping?"      To me the Thames Trader van is special too with it's roof banner proudly proclaiming the delights of stereo.    

Yes, it's the van and not the lorry version, which of course was immortalised as ....the Ten Ton Thames Trader driven by Terry Teddington from Tintwhistel to Tintagel with Ten Tons of  Tin Tin Toilet Tissue bound for Timothy Whites & Taylor's - they're "our sole"  agent.... in my late Father-In-Law's favourite joke.
