By Arthur Smith.
Arthur sent me photo-copies of his Ideal Home Exhibition slogans, and also enclosed some spare slogans for my own collection. I found this of such interest that I have decided to include it in the newletter in the form of an article. Thanks Arthur.

Arthur makes the point that clear impressions are very difficult to find sometimes, and there are gaps where he has not been able to find some years. He is still looking for the missing years.
