Proposed ad for Holland Herald (English language magazine). I have just come across this little treasure among my collection of memorabilia. You recently wrote about someone who lived next to Pinky talking about the first choice made by Terry Bates for the Amsterdam Office to be located at 130 Koninginneweg Amsterdam Zuid. This artwork was produced by H H and dated 5/67. This clearly points to earlier planning regarding the UK-NL move than previously known.
I remember always getting a free copy of HH on KLM flights. They did a three page spread on me during my �Jam� days.
