Vintage Ad Browser
Anjali McKenzie, Former UX Researcher
This morning a friend sent me the link to Vintage Ad Browser, and I wanted to share. According to the web site,
This site aims to collect vintage ads from a variety of sources, including comic books, CD-Roms, websites, APIs, your submissions, book, magazine & comic book scans, and more.
It's inspiring and outright fun to browse the retro/awesome/ ingenious/heartwarming/hilarious/etc. ads from the the last +100 years. Some of the ads even offer the option click through to purchase a print. Here are some gems I found during my exploration:
1908 - what does "serviceable" even mean...?
1944 - shoes: the surefire way to prevent a cold.
1959 - clever.
Hope you enjoy flipping through the ads as much as I did!
