I love old advertising because most of it is so surreal (actually so is modern day advertising). From the early 1900s to today, advertising provides insight into social history. In the beginning of the 19th century health was the big obsession. People were able to promote wild concoctions and potions without fear of the FDA knocking down their door. Today, sex is everywhere and sells anything from a damn burger to a glass of milk.

These are freakin hysterical! A pig slicing itself to make pepperoni, women using Lysol as a douche (the prescription to make any marriage work ;) & a baby shaving - it just doesn't get any better than this!
