Matchbox memories


Oh, man, I love this. Spitalfields Life presents this 1966 Matchbox collectors guide and photographs of the production line at the Lesney factory, which was located in London's East End. Of the nearly eighty Matchboxes shown, there are at least ten or fifteen that I had as a child (Maddie has them now), though I now see that I missed out on the true gem: #74, the Mobile Refreshment Bar.
