These images from a 1976 Argos catalogue are amazing and are a history of what we wanted 35 years ago. The catalogue was found at a London car boot sale recently by Anthony Voz, a vintage lava lamp collector and artist and he decided to scan in every one of its 250 pages and upload it to Flickr online. In contrast if you decided to do that with the 2011 issue you would have 1000 pages to upload...

Love these beauty products (picture above). The 'Remington 850 Hairdryer/Styler' was just £11.75 and look at that lovely cap you get with it!
