ODHAM'S LIVING LANGUAGE COURSE* 1961
You FREE TRIAL FRENCH LESSON ~ ooh! . Love this square Picture Disc! Great period piece,
 and so attractive one would have been quite tempted to order a set! With the quote 
 "Amazing
NEW method - you learn as you listen", this picture flexi solicits a box set of 
 10" LPs. Back has testimonials from many 'delighted students'. States that this course is 
 also available on 78rpm discs. As the mailing envelope is dated 1961, I assume that as it
  boasts 'New method' this set must have been available for quite some time, as French language 
 course on 78rpm had been available some years prior to this. I wonder if R. Waters Esq.
 of Garth Road in Morden, Surrey took up their offer?.* EX+ £20
