My idea originally for this post was to go through my tub of vintage magazines and pick out all my June copies of whatever I had and to pick out all the summer related advertisements, well, I did that but that would give you over 40 pictures to look at so I narrowed it down to copies of Woman's Day, I have three, 1956, 1957 and 1976. These posts are always fun to do and it's so amazing to see how the advertising has changed. So, here we go...click on any picture to get a closer look.
Remember when clothing was Sanforized???
One thing that never changes is the plentitude of cigarette ads - "Don't miss the fun of smoking" what a caption!! And look further down - Remember the "Old Grad"with a carton of Pall Malls on Father's Day!!
These paper placemats look like fun!
I notice that the older magazines have more children in their advertisements.
This Aerosol Bomb sounds powerful!!
This issue didn't seem to have that many summery ads.
This is a pretty ad for Pepsi
Those SOS pads look like rocks!
Another issue - another cigarette ad!!
By the 70's, the advertising is definitely more sexy!
Oh, those pantyhose used to be hot - I never had summer sheers!!
No ads like this back in the earlier issues!!
These shoes are made by Uniroyal - isn't that a tire company! Hah!!
More bug spray.
