POSTERS

Posters were the wall-covering of choice for the adolescent music/pop fan. I'd forgotten just how many I had stashed away in the old trunk I used to get all my stuff down to university (I was a pack rat even then). In those days if you wrote off to the record company you'd like as not get a bundle of bits and pieces by return; and local record shops (Turners and Les Browns in Stockton on Tees, Hamiltons and Alan Fearnley's in Middlesbrough) would let you have the record company promo stuff after a while if you asked nicely. Some real gems I'd forgotten and a few more I've added in recent years courtesy of eBay (when Alison lets me get a look-in ....), as well as some that Ali's beaten me to ....
