Welcome to our blog! We'll be posting all sorts of interesting ads to our blog. Many of these advertisements are highly controversial due to the time-period they were created in. We're sharing these ads because we find them to have historical interest... not because we promote their messages!

Here's a really interesting vintage ad, that relates to our current health care debate! Published by the American Medical Association, this ad discusses compulsory health insurance and urges grass roots movement against government involvement. After 60+ years... does any of this still sound familiar?
I doubt you'd see an ad like this run today. Sure... I get it... washers & dryers are a lot easier than washing clothes by hand. But, I don't think anyone would say it gave them a chance to quit working. There's still plenty of work with sorting, folding, ironing and putting clothes away. Not to mention... guys can do all this, too!
