This bijou gem from the 1970s just oozes with the brown/orange/yellow/lime green palette of that curious decade:

That's all she wrote.


The 1970s, in the UK, halo-ed in the afterglow of the late 1960s - like the whole decade had eaten Ready Brek - struggling to find its own identity amid a growing, grinding, societal gloom; the desperation swept away by the Silver Jubilee, punk/new wave and the rampant greed/speed of the 1980s. I kinda miss it.
