This morning I received this email from Mary Ann, who had received it from our cousin, Suzanne.

Hillarious old ads from the 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's.  Unbelievable.

It's amazing what our culture and the trends of the time are able to sell us.  and scary.

For 30 days test Camels in your T-Zone???? (T for Throat, T for Taste)

Next, this one has to be from the 30's.  
Get thin with sanitized tape worms???  I'd say!

Be sure to read this heading,
"Blow in her face and she'll follow you anywhere".

I remember Daddy getting a carton of cigarettes for Christmas from my grandmother.
Crazy stuff!

If you don't know, this next one is really a cigarette ad, too.

These next two deal with more delicate issues.
It was hard for me to read the small print to see what it was talking about,
but I figured it out.
They've got to be nuts regarding this use for Lysol!

And where this next ad would be, I have no idea - certainly not in an old Better Homes and Gardens.
