ads from the past... that you won't see today

Back in the day when "sexism" wasn't yet a word and "politically correct" wasn't yet a concept... ads like these were common.

These advertisements were originally printed in 1961, 1952, and 1953 respectively.

these pictures were taken from an article in the Daily Mail and are part of a new book entitled You Mean A Woman Can Open It?: The Woman's Place In The Classic Age Of Advertising.

"My wife doesn't need a watch. There is a clock on the stove."
