    Those were the days! I remember the excitement when Argos opened in Harrogate. Great year 1976: fabulous summer, first summer in secondary school... * hobbles off with zimmer frame *

    I like. A whole 2 pages of watches, the current Argos catalogue has about 25+!
    I love the toys, I used to have the Airfix pontoon bridge set and the Vertibird helicopter, which was one of my most favorite childhood toys

    Wow I keep seeing things there I had as a child. The tiny snooker table with red legs/pockets. The magnetic/green chalkboard, the colourful toy phone And one of those Bontempis!

    My God! Have you seen the price of the car radio cassette players? Cosidering this was the mid-70's their most expensive player was £72.95, which in todays money (using this rather wonderful site here: Measuring Worth - Measures of worth, inflation rates, saving calculator, relative value, worth of a dollar, worth of a pound, purchasing power, gold prices, GDP, history of wages, average wage) works out at anywhere between £403 and £829 depending on method used. Not cheap that in car audio gear.
