Anti-War Poster

The anti-war movement was just getting going in '66 when one Lorraine Schneider came up with this now-iconic poster that became more and more prevalent right up through the end of the Vietnam War in the mid-seventies!

Redd Foxx with Merv Griffin

"A stranger to television," here's Redd Foxx with Merv in '66, about 5 years before SANFORD & SON. Redd is introduced as "the king of the party records" but has to explain to the host what party records were!

Stingray Annual

We never had THUNDERBIRDS in my area but I loved SUPERCAR, FIREBALL XL-5 and STINGRAY! In fact, some of my earliest surviving artwork (age 5) is of STINGRAY. In the US, of course, we never got these nifty British Annuals, releases slightly prior to the year itself. Here, from '65, is the '66 STINGRAY ANNUAL.
