The Innocent Days of 70's Youth

I'm often amazed by how sentimental we can be about our childhoods. For me, aesthetically speaking, being brought up in the '70s must have been a pretty grim experience. Nylon slacks, bowl haircuts, flares and platforms - all completely irredeemable. It's a miracle I turned out to have such exceptionally good taste.


Despite the gory truth, there's something so sweetly innocent about these vintage 70's birthday cards, I can't help but love them. Camping, fancy dress, water-skiing,  - it's an idealised view of a 70's British childhood, right down to saying your prayers at night (with Fido by your side) and wearing a bright orange turtleneck. 


How much do you want to bet that he's playing Kumbaya?
