This is part one of my two-parter featuring retro toys exhibited at the Coventry Transport Museum and the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in the city of Coventry, West Midlands, UK.
You can see part two Here
I’ve always enoyed visiting the transport museum and was pleased to see it once again following its recent refurbishment. If you get chance to visit do so – you’ll see a fascinating display of British Midlands’ transport heritage as well as a current exhibition of classic tin and die cast toy vehicles such as Dinky, Corgi and Matchbox.
I couldn’t end the post without at least showing some of the amazing examples of ‘real’ transport on display.
How many of these do you recognise?
While hunting mice today, our office cat, Wooof, found these five French vintage 1970s adverts lodged down the back of the refrigerator. We hope they haven’t been there since the 70s (unlike our sub editor’s Christmas cheese selection or, indeed, the fridge itself!).
Anyway, we’ve been looking for these ads for ages. Well done Wooof, treat yourself to the afternoon off and go and visit some cat-science exhibitions in the town centre or something. You may also wish to send a get-well-soon card to brave Bart the zombie Cat
Here are the ads…
