An original item of paper packaging advertising the clothing boutique, I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet, c. 1967.

Thin pale pink paper, printed in black. Illustrated with the famous image of Lord Kitchener pointing at the viewer taken from Alfred Leete's army recruitment poster of 1914. Approx. 43x34cm. Mounted, framed and glazed (frame measures 59.8x50.7cm.). Faint fold marks and light creasing; unexamined out of the frame.

I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet was initially a market stall on Portobello Road, run by Ian Fisk and John Paul. They opened a shop on Portobello Road in 1966 (managed by Robert Orbach), then added new outlets in Carnaby Street and Piccadilly Circus, before taking over Kleptomania from Tommy Roberts and Charlie Simpson on the King's Road in 1967, renaming it I Was Lord Kitchener's Thing.
