Friday FAIL

More vintage ads for you this week. These are real ads, eye-catchers in their day, and I suppose they sold the products. Funny, but misogynistic.























From Hermione's Heart

Hermione, Equality between man and woman, is the spice of life. And always will be. Each sex contributes the wonders of eternal love, for each other.

Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend,

Hermione said...

Joey - I was deligthed when I found a stash of them.

Dave - The last one's been used on the blogs quite a lot, but it seemed appropriate.

Six - I totally agree with you.

Hugs,
Hermione

It's amazing to look at the older ads and see what changes have been made as time marches on.

I do find these old ads amusing. Hadn't seen the first one before. Thanks Hermione.

Love,

Emen said...

It is shocking, really, to think about it now. But I remember that world. As always, you curate so beautifully. Great collection, if even for a fail. Thanks.

Hermione said...

Governing Ana - Yeah, they're quite breathtaking.

Sunnygirl - True. These were quite acceptable in their time.

Ronnie - I love them.

Emen - Change happens so gradually that it's only by looking back at things like this that we realize how far we have come.

Hugs,
Hermione
