Sepia Saturday 89 - vintage advertisement for windscreen washers

I'm not theming for this week's Sepia Saturday but instead have selected a vintage advertisement from a 1959 edition of Motor Sport magazine. The advertisement is for Windscreen Washers. What I particularly like about it is the authoratitive statement made, presumably by the ernest looking man with the glasses in the white lab coat, which says, "In my opinion nobody should be allowed on the road without one".

Vintage advertisement for Seaside Bathing Tent, c.1926

Thought I'd share another fantastic vintage advertisement from my 1926 London Guide book. And given that (it's supposed to be) Summer, this one is for a Seaside Bathing Tent, providing Comfort and Convenience for Seaside Pleasures and Ideal for Family Life on the Sands. Certainly much easier than executing a delicate and dangerous manoeuvre behind a loosely tethered towel.

Vintage advertisement - Safety Clemak Razor, c.1926

Just time for a quick blog post today before I need to attend to some weeds in the garden. This is an advertisement taken from a 1928 London Guide book. It's for the Clemak Safety Razor, and boasts One Continuous Round of Satisfaction and taking only a minute to strop and a moment to clean.
