The Blog from Oi Polloi presents: by Sam Waller •

Hot off the back of our last scan-fest, here’s yet more adverts uploaded for your viewing pleasure. These ones came from a 1978 issue of a running magazine called R.A.C.E. unearthed during a slightly premature office spring clean that I unwittingly got caught up in last week.

For those too lazy to scroll down, the adverts feature all your favourite running shoes at ultra-low prices that’ll have you reaching for your flux capacitor and raiding your dad’s jar of commemorative shillings.

What is a shilling? Is time travel possible? Will we ever tire of old magazines? Check out these adverts for the answer to none of those questions.

The people say...

    Surely in honour of this great and valuable find Oi Polloi should consider reducing their prices to 1978 rates for one day only?
