My Dad's Shave Setup (mystery Solved)

Hello everyone. I did some more digging into a shave set my dad had that I never knew he owned. The razor seems to be a Gillette Tech. It is labeled Made In England U4. That makes it 1974, correct? The Old Spice mug also seems 70s. I asked my mom about it, and she put the puzzle pieces together. Mom said she bought this for dad in 1974 from the Thalhimers department store as a birthday gift. She said there should also be a matching bottle of Old Spice aftershave too. Mom said this was a typical department store shave kit for the time. If all this is true, then the dates and story line up. Pretty cool.
