Hilarious & disturbing vintage advertisements – 1930’s and onwards

Some hilarious and slightly disturbing magazine and newspapers advertisements from the 1930’s and onwards through to the 1960’s. They really were ‘Mad Men’.

Apologies for the quality of some of these images, they were sent to me in a email, so no idea of the origination of them. If any one knows where these images may have originated from then do let me know so I can put appropriate credits.

I particularly like the first one here, ‘Blow her in her face…’. She looks positively entranced. I don’t smoke, but must try this out.
