Maggie Thatcher in da house

So, as you know, I'm all about reclaim-recycle-renew (viz: our dining room is stacked high with French apple crates which will one day become a bookcase), and in the house, I've been keeping as much as possible to put back. In fact, it's something that my builder has teased me about royally.

But this, is something special. Scrunched under the floorboards in the front bedroom (making up the gap where carpet had been laid sometime before 1959 and the floorboards were not quite level) is Margaret Thatcher's 1959 Finchley election campaign leaflet.

A quite spooky example of print electioneering from a bygone era, and, frankly, very Finchley.

Can you iron it and sell it on e-bay?
