Thursday Night Post

Everyone ready to take a trip back in time with me to 18 November, 1944? Good, because that’s where we’re going, to check out some advertisements in the Saturday Night Post. Hover over each image for a description and transcription, click through to embiggen.

I don’t have much to say about this luverly Lucky Strike ad, other than that I heart the giant gold tobacco leaf.

This Life Savers ad manages to simultaneously guilt people for complaining when their favourite flavour isn’t available, and to lecture women on bad breath. Men, of course, never have bad breath.

And finally, Kodak exhorts people to buy film and take snapshots for the cause. Seriously. You want to tell your man in the service that you’re too cheap to send SNAPSHOTS?
