Funny Old Magazine Ads
Looking back in history, the ads from magazines can provide a chuckle.
While the editorial content of decades-old magazines is often unbelievable in and of itself—the utmost flower power of 1970s, the kid-friendly bars of the 1930s, and the uncompromising color-coordination of the 1950s, to list a few—it’s hard not to get a little side-tracked by the print advertisements of old, particularly when they’re so complete absurd. “Gleaming” asbestos? Check. Pink sheep? Yep. Wall-to-wall carpet in the bathroom? Why not? Cigarettes for weight management? Well, duh. Below, a collection of the silliest print ads from the annals of House Beautiful.
