Thank you very much for sharing the brochure with us. It is very interesting.

I have got some of the machines shown, but there are many still on the wish list.

Robin.

Thank you so much for posting this valuable piece of literature. I get lost in the way the information was communicated, the range available at the time. So nostalgic, well only if you are a vacuum cleaner collector you will clearly understand the xoncept.

Regards
Adrian

@Columbus Yes I am a vacuum collector that's why I'm here.

This leaflet I acquired with a Hoover Senior 6525C (127V spec).

@ilovehoovers I also quite like that shade of green on vintage Hoovers.

Money, money, money ...

They're great brochures and bring back many memories!

I'm now curious about the handwritten figures on many of the pictures. The booklet is in English and suggests it's for the UK/EU market. Somebody has taken a lot of trouble to put pricing info on it, however I wonder what currency it was?

Any ideas?

I think the currency might be Spanish pesetas I don't think it would be Euros it's too old for them.

I'd imagine the first owner whoever bought the Hoover (the Hoover that I got this brochure with) back in it's time wrote down how much all they cost in pesetas, also note that it also says PVP which is a Spanish abbreviation for "precio de venta al publico" it basically means the final price with tax included.

@compuvac

Thanks for the insight. The Euro has been around so long we'll all have forgotten the franc, peseta, deutsche Mark and all the others in another few years ...

The next interesting thing then is that they didn't produce a translated version of the brochure. You'd have thought the Spanish market would be large enough to warrant the investment.

Another piece of fascinating history
