Wetern Electric: Western Electric was ahead of their times. Amazing how technology is moving so fast. This ad below is from 1969 (I think), but a prototype was tested in 1956.

1968 Ad Polaroid instant land camera. The 60 second excitement. I can’t imagine what would happen if today’s digital cameras made you wait 60 seconds before seeing the image. That would cause a lot of excitement.
Ohio Art – Might Tiny Product Packaging: Hey this kind of reminds me of the Sony mini discs? What ever happened to those?
Some Volkswagen Ads:
Have no fear…Even Wilt can fit in the latest VW!. Â See a VW ad from our times:
and if you want to buy the car you can buy it here, y’never know.
Camel Cigarettes: Its interesting how cigarette companies specifically chose doctors to promote the product. Â It would seem that health was a concern for smokers – even back then – and therefore probably ads Â like this would reassure the people it’s not so bad and reduce health concerns.
Phillip Morris SuperLights (SpaceStation)Â – the space age
Zippo – Just For Mom Source – That’s funny.
NOW FOR DRINKS:
CocaCola “coke” Hospitality: Couches used to be pretty small back then – that can’t be a 3 seater. It’s actually nice how in such a casual atmosphere people used to dress so fancy. At least that what it seems like based on this image.
Pepsi Cola – Gives More Bounce for the Ounce: I think the logo on the bottle cap looks pretty good. BTW check out below the way Pepsi branding has evolved over time, it’s pretty interesting.

1963 Kelloggs: Big Bowl of Corn Flakes
1959 Alpha-Bits Cereal: New oat cereal with energy from A to Z
1957 Post Grape Nuts: that’s pretty slim
Jello flavors: I can not imagine eating olives with Jello, but I do love olives and I have never tried it, so who knows.
A selected few from the JELLO SERIES: It’s awesome how illustration used to be so prominent in print ads of the 50’s . It’s refreshing to see such nice illustrations while being influenced by todays computer age. Today, hand illustrations are used much less than they could be, I think, when an illustration is done well, it Â could really spice up a project.
