I’ve been emptying out a storage container in Banbury, where I stashed a bunch of random trunks, boxes and bags in the aftermath of our family home being sold last summer, whilst I decided what to do with it all. Amongst the stuff was a battered old Cult Clothing carrier bag, filled with papers. They turned out to be a set of British Ws from 1988, (once upon a time it was a colour broadsheet newspaper here in the UK), and a few Sunday Times colour supplements. That’s where I found this genius ad from 1988 for what was then an astonishing novelty: a mobile phone.
