The Readers Club was a New Spotlight feature which began in January 1968 and ran intermittently for a further 2 years . 

A sort of Bebo / Facebook for the 60s but as it supplied its members with no “delete my profile” button we‘ve tippexed out the surnames & part of the address from the scans . (Club members had their photo with their full name and home address published.)

The Beatles “When I’m 64” was a tune at the time, which is the age most of these youngsters are now or will soon be.

From New Spotlight Jan & June 1968
