Cool ads Nova, I guess if I didn't want a Marlboro, I could always have a "Chesterfield"....
Very cool Lis.... where'd these come from?
They are from materials that Bruce Shawkey collected through the years. I have them on loan to get them scanned. I need a large format scanner to handle the big fold-out materials. I'll be making that a priority for this next week so that Stephen can have things in their original format, rather than chopped into pieces.
We do have an issue with some of the materials being undated. It's easy to determine a decade, but narrowing it down to a year is problematic.
Wonderful ads. I look forward to seeing them and adding them to the vintage ads section. I'm still working my way though the last batch which you can see under the 1955 adverts.
These are a great find and fill in a few gaps to help ID a few previously unknown models as well as new ones we haven't even seen yet.
Oh yes... same problem with some of the postcards..
The new accutron ads may help us take accutron ID's to a further subset level....like model number or something a little more specific than "1964 Accutron 214", if we are so motivated.
