Sepia Saturday - Projector Guarantee

Apologies to anyone expecting another installment of vintage Motor Sport magazines, or Cult TV paperbacks - I have a couple lined up which hopefully I'll post over the weekend, but for now I thought that this was appropriate for this week's Sepia Saturday entry.

I found this guarantee slotted into a vintage '35mm Photography' magazine I came across recently (and yes, I will devote a blog post to those magazines at some time as well). It's a two year guarantee for a Braun projector, bought at the Oriental Store, Crater, Aden. I assume that as I found the magazine in a UK shop, that the projector was bought by possibly a UK serviceman of civil servant on overseas duty in Aden, some time in the 1960's.

  6. They sound serious about their guarantee. I don't see the 427 disclaimers that usually follow - or the recall notice...

  7. Nice to see one that was not full of ifs ands and buts and all that fine print. Good choice.

  8. They did a guarantee with a real flourish in those days. It looks good enough to frame!

  9. Since the owner left the guarantee in the magazine, I hope s/he never needed to have the projector repaired. The fine print indicates that the guaranteed card needed be sent along with the projector. Interesting find.

  10. Are there two-year guarantees on anything besides cars these days?

  11. I love to find little pieces of ephemera like this and always think how fun it would be to contact the company and try and take them up on their offer.

    Good save.
