My favourite books 18: One for the retailers

Green Shield stamp book, circa 1970

If you are of a certain age, you will remember Green Shield stamps and the trading stamp wars of the 60s and 70s.  You can read more about them here and here – it looks as Green Shield gave us Argos, as well as helping to drive Tesco forward.

Frustratingly, this book – found in the garage – is full of stamps (regular ones and Big 10s).  Too late now for the carriage clock, alas.
