Like lots of people here at The Retroist, I love browsing through old catalogs and finding things from my childhood. For me, the book of choice for this strange form of entertainment is the Argos twice-yearly catalog which I would spend my youth circling items in, hoping that my parents would see my scribbles and take the hint.
This Batman image from the Autumn 1978 edition wouldn’t have attracted my attention, I had only just been born, but with phrases like “Holy Smoke, Batman” and “Dynamic Driving” amongst its 6 sounds, you can guarantee it would have been. The cost then was £3.75 which would now be £20 in today’s money – a bargain, wouldn’t you say?
If you’d like to do a little Argos-browsing, please check out the awesome Retromash site!
