Vintage Vogue covers

“I could see you in a Sussex teashop,

Dressed in peasant weaves and brogues,

Turning over, as a firelight shone on brassware,

 Last years tea-stained Vogues.”

     John Betjeman

 

Whilst beginning the lengthy process of sorting and packing up all the things we own before we move house in April, I came across a little (tea-stained) gem that I’d forgotten all about;
