L' U' L d R' U' R//Second Pair
d R' U2 R//Third pair with a hint of multislotting
U' R U R' U2 R U' R'//Fourth Pair, Super easy f2l overall
r U R' U R U2 r'//OLL
d' R' U L' U2 R U' R' U2 R L//PLL, not the alg I normally use but to keep the solve rotationless

Method from 1982. Two minutes was my average time and I was proud if I got under 100 seconds :cool:. Slice moves did not even exist because of crappy hardware. Nowadays the LBL-beginner methods are way more elegant and way less turns. OMG, that was cumbersome... :eek:
Code:
R U R U2 F U F U                           // white cross     |  8h  9q  8e
x2 y2 U' F R' F' R                         // 1st corner      |  5h  5q  7e

y' U F R' F' R                             // 3rd corner :)   |  5h  5q  6e
y2 U F R' F' R                             // 4th corner      |  5h  5q  6e
