Retro Adverts..are you serious?!
So, after my last post on "Old school pearls of wisdom" a friend of mine sent me these retro adverts.
Looking at the illustrations and graphics, I would say some go as far back as the Victorian era, and we all know how strange they were - afterall these are the same People that thought food was digested better in the dark, so a dining room in the basement was considered the best spot in which to eat. Really? Another little thing to remember is that some of the best gothic novels were written during the Victorian era, namely, the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as well as Dracula. Enough said!
Anyway, back to the task at hand....as I was saying, besides some of the ads being from the early part of the 1900's others are very definitely from the 50's and even as late as the 70's.
Here are some of my favourites..make sure you read the fine print - sometimes that's the best part!! Enjoy and have a giggle!!
Unbelievable! Can you imagine printing and reading something like that in your new Cosmo Mag??!!!
Have a fab week-end everybody,
Till next time,
