It's Time for Some Vintage Ads

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 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.

I love to find these old magazines, you should keep your eye out for them too!

  1. I love these posts. I always look for old magazines at the thrift and at garage sales. Love the ads. Those 1970s ones were full of subliminal messages too, they used to do that until they made it illegal(like skulls in icecubes). Cheers!

  2. I do love the old ads, the fashions as well as the ads are fun to look at. I gave my daughter a copy of the Sun. newspaper where we published her birth announcement from 1981. She was so taken with the Target ads that she posted them on Facebook!

  3. I love looking at the old advertisements. This was a fun post!

    I love posts like this, Jill! My fave is the SOS ad, super cute. Thanks for joining the History & Home link party, take care - Dawn @ We Call It

  9. Jill these ads were so fun to see!
    Interesting...The paper placemat ad says "Just use once and toss away". You can tell that the concept of disposable/one time use type of things was just starting up.
    Fun post! Hope you're having a nice day. I decided to skip flea market #1 this morning, so #2 tomorrow better be good! Ha!

  10. Just another Jill to add to your followers!!

  11. I always love looking at old ads Jill. I have a few and I always chuckle when I browse through them. Must say, I'm glad we wised up about cigarettes! Love the Pepsi and Lemonade ad! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
