Retro goodies

A gallery of the weird and wonderful from way back when. Don’t laugh, some of this stuff was considered “High Tech” in my day (or was it called “cutting edge?”). I guess though, this page could never really finish as there is just so much stuff out there just waiting to be found.  Wherever possible I have tried to use my own images in this gallery, but it is inevitable that copyright may reside with the copyright owners of these images. I have tried my best to avoid this as much as possible.
