I'm indebted to Mike H for sending me scans of an old copy of Bricks and Pieces magazine from 1975. If you are not familiar with B&P, check out our archive of issues from the 1970s and 80s. This issue, no. 2, Spring 1975, would appear to be the second issue published: from the editor's note it seems that no. 1 was published just before Christmas in 1974.
This issue is a corker, see if you can find the statements that made me chuckle:
"Please don't write and ask if you can have 3 with cowboy hats instead of 2 or anything like that..."
"It's not only children that build with LEGO you know..."
"Follow the instructions very exactly..."
We just don't write like that these days, do we, particularly to 7-10 year olds (more's the pity...)
