Sheds from seventeen quid? of course it’s 1958

A great advert in our Just Sheds flickr group.

The practical housekeeper from April 1958

thanks to Lost-Albion for sharing it.

he has a great collection of old adverts and the like (and a lot of buses ) – some of my non shed favourites are

Fed 2

Ford Cortina

another advert from Susanne on Flickr – old advert for the shed company Taylor`s Garden Buildings

old advert for the shed company Taylor`s Garden Buildings

basic shed design does not seemed to have changed that much really – but the prices sure have!

but to top 1958 – Our friends at Waltons sheds have an advert for their garages from 6th July 1934

A few years ago I had a thing about going round car boot sales and getting old DIY/make mags to see what they said about sheds in them – but the collection got lost – maybe something I should start again (looks round to make sure mrsuw is not reading)

If you have any old adverts about sheds – let me know or add them to the Flickr group.
