A while back I started following Retro Advert, a wordpress blog illustrating one collector’s finds in American print advertising. I’ve been granted permission to post a few wonderful ads for the next few Saturdays until I can get my hands on some more vintage magazines. I’ve used a number of the great ones out of the magazines I own, and there are still a few gems left in The Gentlewoman Magazine. But I don’t want to exhaust all of my resources at once!
As always, a HUGE thank you to Retro Advert for letting me post your content!
So, without further ado, here’s a Holeproof Hosiery ad from 1922. It’s so beautiful!
