Vintage football programmes from the 1960's and 1970's

Having shared a few advertisements found in vintage football programmes recently I thought it only fair to also post some of the covers for those more interested in football itself. These are a few of my current favourites.

More vintage advertisements from 1960's and 1970's football programmes

Hot on the heels of my last vintage advertisement blog post here is another selection of vintage advertisements found in football programmes from the 1960's and 1970's.

Looking more like a late 1960's album cover than a beer advert, this vintage advertisement is from 1967 and attempts to capture the psychedelic era with its swirly text, although I am fairly sure the summer love was not fuelled by Double Diamond.

So, you've had your dutch courage with a pint of Double Diamond, and now you're all set for that date. But hang on a minute, what is that you are wearing? Better get yourself down to Foster Brothers for "men's wear with a flair".

So, if you're anything like me, clothes shopping brings you out in a rash, so probably time for another quick drink to build up your "inner man".

And of course in the 1960's (but thankfully not now) you could smoke in the pub. In fact it was probably compulsory. So, you could "join the men" and roll your own.
