Vintage Advertising for the Distinguished Connoisseur

ADSAUSAGE is a global consortium of pop culture ventures, with offices in North London, Cairo and its current headquarters; Los Angeles. The firm was started by curator, Chas Devlin in 1996, when it was known as Sleazerama.

We represent the personal archives of the late international business magnate, Sir Roger Delfont. Spanning over fifty years, this once-private collection of jet-age memorabilia is being presented for the first time.

We owe a debt of gratitude to the DelCo Corporation in Boca Raton, Florida. For more information on The Delfont Archives, please look no further than The Delfont Archive page.

From the Vaults

It's true - the Delfont archives comprise of a ridiculous amount of vintage advertising, but they also house a superb collection of other delightful goods; postcards, movie memorabilia, family photos, gas station receipts for some reason, and so much more. We're dead chuffed to start offering a selection right here.

So put the kettle on, grab a rich tea digestive (or two), and settle in...

Vintage Vegas

Top draw line-up of hotels and marquee signs, taken from old slides. Circa '77. No filler. Just the business.

Modern Style

Nice selection of 60's and 70's architectural beauty. Expect a fair amount or lush carpet and warm, muted colors. Don't break anything.

Wish You Were Here

In the days when people used a pen to communicate, and addresses required two lines and a zip code.

Parade

Britain's top-shelf, working class rag with suburban sexpots, celebrity gossip and crosswords. We've omitted the last two. Stay for the centerfolds.

The Family Album

We've unearthed some disturbing treasures that we acquired from peoples homes (they were on vacation).

Glamour

The seedier side of modeling.

Vinyl

The Delfont Archives amassed a considerable amount of album covers - not surprising as Roger Delfont was a lifelong record collector. It's possible that some of them were closely connected to him: Roger invested heavily during the 1960's, gaining entry to the music business through personal friend, bandleader Buddy Fox.

However, most of his private label issues were written off as losses, partly due to associate and partner Myron Lucas (born Maurice Lukaszewicz) siphoning profits from album sales.

Presented are a few covers we've been able to find.
