1978 COMPETITION IDEA: One of my Newcastle Rituals is to root through all the old stuff I’ve left at my grandparent’s house. Echoes from young child hood, teen years and beyond…
This picture was taken from the 1978 Swap Shop annual. A reference perhaps 10 of my readers will get. No matter, look at this wicked cool calculator!
Sinclair also appeared later in my life in 1982 with the release of the Sinclair Spectrum, home computer (mentioned a few posts ago). I was a proud nerd in those days. Waaaaaay before it was hip :).
I actually had a picture of Sir Clive Sinclair on my wall. Most boys at that age would rather have football players or Sam Fox (google her). Ah. Good times.
