    On The Cards – Greetings From The Sixties

    1960s • 3027 Views

    The greeting card ritual can be traced way back to the ancient Chinese who exchanged good will messages for the New Year. By the 15th century the custom of sending cards continued throughout Europe. One of the first examples of a Valentine’s Day card is currently displayed in the British Museum in London.

    Here we have a collection of groovy greetings cards from the swinging sixties that escaped the bin and found their way to the loft or thrift store, then the world wide web.

    Happy Viewing and all the best from Voices of East Anglia

For those who are unfamiliar with the name but have a vague interest in cricket then it might be worth checking out. However, we digress. Check out this great archive of material from The Weekly from back in the day. See, we managed two paragraphs there without one mention of Sheilas. Continue Reading

    When the sixties had finally stopped swinging and The Who’s singer Roger Daltrey started wearing tassels, the word “Mod” became a word that advertisers casually used to brand anything. There was Barbie’s partner Ken with his Mod Doll Hair and his not so modernist moustache. Then there was the more hippy than hipster Mod Generation stickers without a fishtail parka in sight. And bizarrely in 1969 Kraft used the slogan Mod American to sell their cheese slices. To twist the words of Mod icon Pete Meaden – This was cheesey advertising under difficult circumstances.
