Hello fellow vintage lovers!
As you know, we love checking out vintage magazines and newspapers and I have another one to share with you all! I was given this issue of Newsweek by my boyfriend’s mother. This issue is from June 27, 1966 making it over 45 years old!
My favorite thing about old papers and magazines are the advertisements and this Newsweek has some great ones:
These “figuring machine” and IBM computer system ads are proof of how far technology has come in the past few decades….
and this creative television advertisement for Sylvania is gorgeous! I’ve noticed that the advertisements from days gone by contain a lot more verbiage and description than modern advertisements…
I really like this Kodak ad…”You have camera?! I must KEES you!”
Looks like Traveler’s Insurance was using the “umbrella” as their symbol way back in the sixties….
Great Day is a Men’s Hair Color made by Clairol. Look at all that text! TL;DR….however, you should try putting your hand over the gray half of his hair to see how much younger he looks. Adrian and I tried it and he does look a bit more chipper with the brown hair…
Volkswagen liked to keep it simple….
TWA advertising their in-flight movies with a cheery ad….
I think someone likes Whisky a little too much.
“Oh what does she care about refined oil?! As long as she has an oufit to match her scooter!”
“Hmmm…maybe if I stare at the hood of the car, the tire will reinflate on its own.”
Oh! I also wanted to mention that another one of our items made into a very creative Etsy Treasury today!
