I had so much fun sharing those vintage Christmas cigarette ads on Monday that I decided to share some more holiday advertisements from long ago. None of the ads below are for cigarettes. Instead, they’re for everything from lingerie to guns to cameras. Some of them have more Christmas spirit than others and a few of them would probably lead to a boycott if they were used today.
The earliest ad below is the one for the “Big Dick” machine gun. It was published in 1917. The oldest, for Polaroid cameras, came out in 1978. Check them all out below:
