A framed collectible vintage ad from Ads Classics

February 1923

USE CAR’S EXHAUST TO CLEAN CUSHIONS

Using the exhaust gas of the automobile to clean the upholstery is the accomplishment of a recently invented device. An aluminum attachment is fastened to the exhaust pipe and the engine is allowed to idle.

As the exhaust gas passes through this device suction is created at the inlet hole. Collected by a nozzle, the dust and dirt are drawn through the hose and expelled into the air at the rear of the car.

It is made in three models, for cars of different size.

With the car's engine idling, gas from the exhaust creates a vacuum that cleans the cushions.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT! This is a real car ad.

Aunt Jemima "I'se In Town Honey"

1940'S

Aunt Jemima - Sho' sets folks singin'!

It was founded in 1889, and 100 years later, "the image of Aunt Jemima was updated by removing her headband and giving her pearl earrings and a lace collar." But what about the image of Aunt Jemima, say, six or seven decades ago?

We dug through the archives for some classic Aunt Jemima ads from the 1940s, and it's true what they say: "Happifyin' Aunt Jemima Pancakes Sho' Sets Folks Singin'!" and "I'se In Town Honey!"

No comment... We'll let you decide.

Aunt Jemima has a rich history spanning over 115 years.
 
1889
Chris Rutt and Charles Underwood of the Pearl Milling Company developed Aunt Jemima, the first ready mix.
1890
R.T. Davis purchased the struggling Aunt Jemima Manufacturing Company. He then brought the Aunt Jemima character to life when he hired Nancy Green as his spokeswoman.
1914
The image of Aunt Jemima was so popular that the company was renamed the Aunt Jemima Mills Company.
1926
The Quaker Oats Company purchased the Aunt Jemima Mills Company.
1933
For the Chicago World’s Fair in 1933, the advertising planners decided to bring the Aunt Jemima character back to life. They hired Anna Robinson, described as a large, gregarious woman with the face of an angel. She traveled the country promoting Aunt Jemima until her death in 1951.
1937
Quaker’s first registration of the Aunt Jemima trademark occurred in April, 1937.
1955
From the mid 1950’s until the late 1960’s Aylene Lewis was hired to portray Aunt Jemima at the Aunt Jemima restaurant in the newly opened Disneyland.
Heroine Advertisement

Date unknown

FARBENFABRIKEN - Friedr Bayer and Co. ELBERFELD

From 1898 through to 1910 HEROIN was marketed as a non-addictive morphine subsitute and cough medicine for children.

Bayer marketed heroin as a cure for morphine addiction before it was discovered that heroin is converted to morphine when metabolized in the liver, and as such, “heroin” was basically only a quicker acting form of morphine. The company was somewhat embarrassed by this new finding and it became a historical blunder for Bayer.

Bayer AG is a massive German based chemicals and pharmaceuticals manufacturer. It has operations in most countries worldwide and after a controversial year in 2004 posted a net loss of $1,361,000,000.00.

As a major player in 4 controversial sectors for over 125 years Bayer has a distinguished history of corporate crimes, ranging from the manufacture and sale of controversial drugs (Heroin, Ciproxin and Baycol), the development of chemical warfare agents and poisons (Chlorine Gas, Zyklon B and VX), the use of forced labour during WW2, and numerous cases of poisoning, lethal side-effects and environmental pollution connected to its chemical and pharmaceutical products.

In December 2001, Multinational Monitor rated Bayer AG as one of their Top Ten Worst Companies of the year. In December 2003, Alternet ranked Bayer as one of 'The 10 Worst Corporations of 2003'.
Vintage Venereal Desease Ad

PROPHYLAXIS Presents Venereal Disease

You may thin she's just you "gal" But She may be Everyone's Pal.

At least they made their point.

The term prophylaxis refers to medical or public health measures taken in order to prevent disease or health problems, rather than to treat or cure an existing condition. Prophylaxis is also a way to stem an outbreak of disease, or minimize the symptoms of someone who has been exposed to a disease or virus.
