Will Fly BS: Long gone stationery supplies (107* d) BS: Long gone stationery supplies 14 Nov 18

I was recently in correspondence with some former BBC colleagues about the days - back in the late '60s and early '70s - when we used to write and produce the magazine of the BBC Folk Club: "Clanfolk". Reminiscing about how we produced it reminded us of all sorts of office and stationery stuff we used to use - now all long gone, we think.

Do you remember names of duplicators like Roneo, Gestetner, Dymo tape with its distinctive alcoholic smell, Letraset rub-on lettering sheets, blotting paper, carbon paper...? Modern IT has made them all obsolete. I can't say I miss them, but I do have a certain mostalgia for their primitive nature!
