London EVening Standard July 1969
« on: August 02, 2019, 04:08:14 PM »
In July 1969 I purchased a souvenir copy of the London Evening Standard for 2/-9d (about 13p in today's money). It became battered and ripped over the years but I have just managed to procure another copy for £3.00.
Apologies for some of the close-ups the focus on the camera is garbage. I have made a short YouTube video of some of the pages.

Any requests for copies of articles please PM me and I will oblige.

An interesting footnote was the exposure of Luna 15, there were nearly as many articles on the Russian probe as there were for Apollo 11.

Neat souvenir.
