Who remembers these old tin advertising signs? We came across these ones in a bar at a wedding venue recently, they are very quirky and a good talking point over a few beers!
I never smoked, but I remember Gold Flake cigarettes, they didn’t even have filter tips, and I am sure were very strong smelling, as well as having almost pure tobacco in them…..wouldn’t even be allowed in today’s health conscious world.
I can remember these exact sandals from my childhood, same colour, same design. I wonder if they are still being made today? Sometimes if you were very lucky, you got them in red leather…what a treat!
Who remembers Reckitts Blue, a little square of blue that our mothers added to the weekly wash to make our whites whiter! It really worked, and I have read that it was a similar product that our grandmothers used as a ‘blue rinse’in their grey hair! If you are too young to remember, you can read about this magic solution here.
And last but not least –
I love the caption on this one ‘LAUGHS at danger from disease’ Hahaha! It was probably something like Jeyes Fluid, foul smelling and a danger to human skin! The small print says it can be used on dogs and other animals (but not cats) Might have been slightly toxic!
I hope you have enjoyed looking at these old signs, have you come across any of these?
