The "Oldies But Goodies Advertisements" Story
It was an ordinary day. Walking through yet another antique shop in another little town along the Chesapeake Bay area in Maryland looking for nothing in particular, since I already have too many antiques in my home, myself included. Came upon an entire stand that featured 20th century advertisements for items such as food, drink and even smokes. As I looked through the stand I found some that were visibly older than others and some that seemed as if I had just seen them a few years ago. And, I guess that's possible since 20th century advertisements could have been anything from January 1, 1901 until December 31 of 2000. Took photographs of some of the most interesting advertisements to share with you. Now, the older you are, the more you may enjoy the ads, since some advertisements I took photos of may be older than some of you. How would you feel if you were viewing an advertisement printed on paper or cardboard that was older than you? I doubt if I came upon too many older than me, but it might have been possible. Can't include all the photos I took, since you may become bored, but have posted some of my favorites in a few different areas of interest. It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.
