Here I present toys and games, which were mainly in my youth around the 70s and 80s were current

Wickie, Slime & Paiper

_20160611_185029
ISBN 3-205-98989-9

It does not have anything directly to do with technology, but perhaps fits under the title “retro” as a post very well in the blog: A book for browsing memories of the 70s and 80s is the band “Wickie, Slime and Paiper” by Susanne Pauser and Wolfgang Ritschl. The book was published in 1999 by Böhler-Verlag Wien. It is a printed summary of an online forum as a souvenir album for the children of the seventies. It mentions numerous products and fashions, television and radio programs that were up to date at the time and is discussed and commented by the protagonists of the forum, themselves children of the seventies. The print is accompanied by scanned images of posters, catalogs, advertising slogans.

An old tin …

… from the fund of grandmother’s cottage is this instant powder can.IMG_3873

The post does not have much to do with technology this time, but I’ve noticed this tin can because of the age and the designer graphics from times gone by. That’s why a few pictures of it must come in here. You do not see that very often anymore.

As can be seen in the photo, the instant powder can is the packaging of Ovomaltine.

Ovaltine contains the ingredients barley malt, milk powder, low-fat / de-oiled cocoa, whey powder, glucose syrup, yeast and honey. From the names of the ingredients is also the name Ovomaltine together: ovum (Latin egg) and malt (English malt). The high proportion of malt gives the Ovaltine their typical taste. Like the powder of instant cocoa drinks, Ovaltine is ready to drink after being stirred into cold or warm milk. (Wikipedia)

According to online research, the tin dates from the years 1954-1961 and was apparently used by my grandmother as a storage container for mothballs 🙂IMG_3880
