Some time ago I purchased a dvd of vaious vintage images from EBAY. Included on it were Christmas images, maps, war time posters,animals, faries, children and adverts - just file after file of images.
Even though you know that there is a whole generation that was virtually forced to smoke ( my parents generation and those a little older and younger), looking at them with todays views these adverts make such scarey claims. Starting from the usual 'I am famous and I smoke so its cool' some
claims get more and more outrageous
Doctors it would seem have spent an incredible amount of time endorsing products for advertising campaigns. I do not smoke and never have - I am neither pro nor anti-smoking. But I think the ever changing acceptable standards of advertising is interesting and at times a bit frightening. I am glad though that I have copies of these little snips of social history.
Back to crafting later today........
