Sepia Saturday 164 - are you a leader?

Unfortunately only a few moments to participate in this week's Sepia Saturday, but I have managed to find something on theme, well the theme of peaked, military hats anyway. This is an advertisement from the March 1963 edition of Air Mail magazine and is reaching out for people to join the R.A.F. Volunteer Reserve.

Sepia Saturday 163 - vintage motor oil advert, c.1959

Well we seem to be clear of snow here in West Berkshire, for the moment at least, but not to miss out on the theme for this week's Sepia Saturday I found this vintage advertisement in the March 1959 edition of Motor Sport magazine. It's for BP Energol Visco-static motor oil, and the picture on the advert is of Mr McCarthy's Ford Zephyr after a night out in the New Zealand Alps. I particularly like the strap line of advert, "Snowed up in the mountains yet it started first touch". This feels very much like 1950's langauge to me and I can imagine someone like Leslie Philips saying this ... possibly followed by "ding, dong", or "woof".
