A    A SLIM television  (Ultra Bermuda)
with automatic tuner and selector

An automatic tuner and channel selector, a VHF radio and a slim, elegant cabinet are three excellent features of the new Ultra Bermuda 17 inch de luxe television set which has arrived at Alwyn Isherwood of Leeds, Lands Lane, straight from the Radio Show in London.

A press of a button on the dial selects your TV channel or VHF station, ready tuned automatically and simultaneously illuminates the dial face to indicate the channel or station in use.

Available in three different colours and finishes, the set is light enough to be moved from room to room and the short neck 110 deg tube is guaranteed for 12 months.

The model pictured is covered in Caribbean blue Armoride fabric with a screen frame in sea island white, a speaker grille in moonlight silver and silver tipped controls.

The price is 74 Guineas

The set is also available without the radio and automatic selector and tuner, and both types can be had with a 21 inch screen  -  all at different prices of course.

B    USEFUL heating device for baby's bottle

C    DURABLE Vinyl floor covering
from America

D    ORIGINAL lamps
from wine bottles and vases

E    TEENAGE disc fans will "dig" this
fully transistorised record player by BUSH.
Incorporating VHF Radio
(light programme only)
22 Guineas from Vallances, Briggate, Leeds.

Margaret's Picture of a boat trip - passing through Fall Ings Lock (Wakefield)

Mel's Comments
This lock has no ground paddles - only gate paddles which must be opened VERY slowly.
Boats should be kept well back from the 'head gates' NOT like the boat in this picture !

I think the green boat is 'Tony One' and DID sink in Fall Ings Lock !!
(I'm not surprised - seeing this picture !!)
