Who you gonna call...

Thoughts have turned in recent days to what some would call signature elements to Rhiw the most important being dating and place. What I've found so far is that it was easier to get information about WR in 1965 for Unnycoombe than it is currently to get the same for S Wales in 1985. You would think that as I was in a cot in 1965 and adult in 1985 that the later would be easier. It was decided that a good way to 'plant' the period would be a couple of posters on the shelter. A contemporary fare dodger one was found, then the thoughts turned to films. Wikipedia gave me not only a list of high selling films of 1984/5 but posters too. A conversation with Mrs. F. concluded that as they were to be shrunk down to 10mm wide that the bolder graphic ones would work better. Back to the Future was rejected as it was mostly text, as were the Harrison Ford epics. The above came top. And I've never even seen it.

  1. As I recall, beofre the film came out there was an advetising campaign that just featured the logo on a black background. The full poster was more common though I'm sure. Mind you, it was a long time ago and I was only a kid !
