Vintage Ad

One of the coolest things about using Flickr is that I find out what kind of images appeal to the most people.

I'm finding that vintage advertising and illustration inherently carries a big audience.
So I tend to look at old magazines and books with a new eye now.

This is a weird ad. Check out the baby tied to the plunger!
And what's with all the guns?--every kid has one!
I mean, it's just an ad for shoes.
Hmmm... Gun-toting space boys and girl

Barb. You had to be there. Different time, different life.
Having one's own gun, was like having one's own car.

This ad is so funny! Great graphics and colors. I was one of those babies that wore the hightop white baby shoes (born in 1966) but strangly enough, I didn't pack a lazer gun! LOL!
