Bubblewrap #24 said "BTW Compo did you enjoy your trip to Aberystwyth Compo ?"

Yes I did but SWMBO didn't - she pranged her car whilst driving through to Devil's Bridge to pick me up at the end of the ride! :)

Compo, That is just my idea of heaven in a Jigsaw. I noticed one particular old favorite on there; it was a big seller in our shop in the 1970s. The block of Cadburys Milk Tray. I looked it up on the Internet and it was brought out the year before I was born 1947, not sure of the original price at that time, and it was on sale until 1981, the year before we left our Beer Off. Do you know if the Jigsaw is still available.

Thank you Katyjay. We will have a good look at that site. I'm pretty sure there will be plenty of choice.

Regarding the Cadbury Milk Tray Bars in #37. The shape was different in the 1970s, more oblong than square.

#25 Bubblewrap, Does the Jigsaw have a title that I can use to find one. That style and the Old Choc bar one of Compo's are the kind we like>

Carni: The Jigsaw is one of a series of Robert Opie's collection. Do a Google search for "Robert Opie Jigsaws" and you will find them. The chocolate ones are a series from 1940s through to 1980s; one for each decade. The one I have is the 1950s.

A particularly evil friend of ours used to buy her brother a jigsaw puzzle every Christmas.

Only problem, that all he got was a thousand pieces in plastic bag and no clue as to what the puzzle was about.

Great puzzle Bubblewrap #44

My guess as to era is late 70's ? based on what looks like a VCR under the TV, the flares and the Concorde between the two houses.

It would be great if you could show photos of the other two as that one brought back so many memories, we even had a wall unit similar to the one in the jigsaw. The Raleigh Chopper another Nottingham icon.
