Classic Ads

I have to warn you, one of these advertisements could be thought of as racist. It’s the way they did things back in the day. Actually, they could be deemed sexist as well. Not all, but most of them.

introduced in 1925 and produced by Lever Bros.
Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Demi Moore and Brigette Burdot all endorsed the product
toilet soap contains more fatty material than bath soap, gets you cleaner, according to the web

Back in the day, women did all the shopping so advertisers targeted women.

these types of ads became popular during times when negative health effects were starting to take hold

Asthma cigarettes were actually medicated and were a precursor to the inhaler. Ingredients included stramonium leaves, tea leaves, chestnut leaves, gum benzoin, and kola nuts.

in 1921, the phrase “swim suit” started being used, instead of “bathing suit”

“Bed is the poor man’s Opera.”
