    TT looks like an upmarket Dual. The rack is a 1970s/80s Ladderax much beloved of student accomodation.

    Looks like a Pioneer receiver and AR speakers plus a nice picture of a Constellation on the wall which helps to date the photo.

    It's a proper brown-fest of furnishings. Reminds me of my grandad's flat in the 70s.

    Lockheed Super Constellation.
    One of the most beautiful aircraft ever made.

    The rack is a Paul Cadovious 'Royal System' wall unit. This is still made though the modern copy isn't compatible with the original.
    If anyone desperately wants this wall unit I have one in my garage, it's original, and I've owned it for about 40 yrs and it wasn't new then. It's been used in kids bedrooms, in the garage and some bits are missing but if anyone fancies a furniture restoration project, the underlying structure is well made and still sound. Cosmetically most of it is sh*t. I have a full depth three drawer unit, full depth desk, full depth drinks cabinet. A half depth unit with sliding wooden drawers, and a selection of full and half depth shelves. I really need to put it on eBay!

    Ev'ry picture tells a story, but the eyesight or magnification capabilities of some of you is uncanny. It's not exactly a high def. picture !

    We may not have had aircon vents like that but we did have warm air central heating vents that looked like that at my mother’s house in the early 70’s.
