VTT - 2 BOOKS, 2 ADS!

Before we get started, let's just have some candy - every day? Sure! This ad is from a 1941 boys' magazine.

Here's the cover of a 1966 book that Mister picked up in a box of books by the side of the road. I just think the cover is hilarious!Might as well stick with the media theme - here's one I picked up recently on eBay.
I'll leave you with another vintage ad from a 1950's LIFE magazine- have a great weekend everyone!

Vintage ads are fun. I almost showed some today. I never heard of Kan-Kil--what a descriptive name.

Good Morning Sue!
Boy they don't make things like they used to do they? I love the old advertisements and the products actually worked. Now we don't what else they did to us, but they did work. I sure do love the candy one. Eat candy. Wouldn't the dr.s today have fun with that one? Thanks for sharing sweetie. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit. Country hugs, Sherry

Love the old advertisements....I wonder if 30 years from now our current ads will look as funny?

I've been brainwashed to leave a comment, just by seeing the cover of that book! It really works!

Obviously the candy advertisers read the brain washing book! Sorry I missed Rednesday this week, was working on a new blog look. I'll be back next week though!
