Through the Magpie Eye: Assorted Adverts (Part Deux)

Published: Mon Feb 22 2016

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.
