More Interesting Ads

1954 Phillip Morris
There are a lot of now ironic looking cigarette ads out there. I thought this one was interesting because it claims to use scientific technology to protect you from harsh irritants.


Fokker Aircraft, Circa 1930’s
The name sounds like something from Meet The Parents, but actually it was an aircraft company that was a  force in the industry in the first half of the 20th century.


Hoebich Studebaker, 1940’s

I couldn’t find much besides this postcard. I don’t know if anyone ever joked about the name during its time.


Asbestos, early 1930’s
It’s easy for us to see the irony on this one, but at the time, nobody had any reason not to think it was a great building product, and as a facebook group member said, if you still have it anywhere in your house, and it’s not exposed, it is should still be ok.

If you want more of these, we ran another series a little while back here.
