Look what turned up in a bag of old knitting patterns destined for the tip!  This edition of House and Garden magazine was published in 1968 and cost 4 shillings.  Along with it was this old sewing and haberdashery catalogue.

One of our previous staff members now works in London at MacCulloch & Wallis, although she was born long after this copy of stock articles was printed.
