Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - the Way We Were -

NO IPADS OR IPODS HERE The Bea­tles open their psy­che­delic Ap­ple Bou­tique on Lon­don’s Baker Street in De­cem­ber. Paul McCart­ney calls it ‘a beau­ti­ful place where beau­ti­ful peo­ple can buy beau­ti­ful things’. But sho­plift­ing racks up £200,000 of losses and it closes in July 1968. The Fabs just give the stock away. SPACE ARIEL The first satel­lite built out­side of the US or USSR is fin­ished in Farn­bor­ough, Hamp­shire. Ariel 3 is launched in May and trans­mits ex­per­i­ment re­sults back to the Ra­dio and Space Re­search Sta­tion in, um, Slough. STAM­FORD FIRST Stam­ford, in Lin­colnshire, is made Bri­tain’s first con­ser­va­tion area. John Bet­je­man dubbed it ‘Eng­land’s most at­trac­tive town.’ BYE BYE, BOYS The end of Boy’s Own is a par­tic­u­lar loss to tra­di­tion­al­ists. Started by the Re­li­gious Tract So­ci­ety in 1879, the weekly paper was full of der­ring-do, Chris­tian morals and keep­ing a Bri­tish stiff up­per lip. And rightly so, old chap.
