Section N Underpass


Carlton Krane arrives in the living room of his new home courtesy of an unexpected detour into the Section N Underpass.

The multi-coloured carpets, hypnotic-patterned wallpaper and the Cortina in the garage indicate a reversal of time.

Drawn to the utility room by the swirling sound of the twin-tub washing machine, he discovers a shoebox full of typewritten documents – documents containing details of advertising, leisure, lifestyle and entertainment from yester-years. Section N Underpass – the ‘N’ stands for Nostalgia – existing in the past... a reality! Tag-along with Carlton Krane whilst enjoying nostalgic straplines, stories, facts, photos and sketches.

Section N Underpass is full-on nostalgia without lumps, fat or gristle - guaranteed! Every page will make you smile, giggle or laugh out loud. A must read for anyone who enjoys regular trips back down memory lane.

The Great British Blog Book for Nostalgic Geeks was published in 2017. The book is a collection of raw, straight to the point blogs relating to the 70s, 80s and early 90s.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The book contains fantastic photographs inspiring great memories , a fantastic talking point with all my friends. I highly recommend Section n Underpass.

A time capsule full of memories. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, jogging my memory, taking me on a time travelling journey back to my school days, and growing up. A well deserved read.

This book is a lovely, nostalgic romp through the 1970s and 1980s. It is framed by the story of Carlton Krane’s trip into the Section N Underpass but each chapter works as a delightul stand-alone mini story or article reminding us of TV programmes, adverts and products that used to be part of our everyday lives. The factual closing comments are fun too.

by Alison

A simple, useful guide. J an a writer and have more than the basic level of understanding but this book still had helpful and insightful tips that I have picked up and used. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an entry level text on the subject.

Born in London in the 70s and addicted to British Nostalgia. Remember the days when Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks threw their weight around the wrestling ring? I watched in awe as the Milk Tray man delivered boxes of chocolates in various adventurous ways. Thanks to the Green Cross Code Man my limbs have stayed in tact. I was far too common to consume Angel Delight - jelly and fruit cocktail was the gold standard in our household. The cakes at the summer fayre were exceedingly good but where was Mr Kipling? The Ready Brek glow surrounded many of us as we walked to school on a cold and frosty morning. Now I'm a full grown man, I splash on the Brut and Old Spice after shaving - some people say I smell like their grandad ... I take this as a compliment!

Yep I still use a typewriter!
