In our everyday life we are sick and tired of excessive quantity of advertisements, but this magazine I bought because of ads. The Countryman, Autumn 1951 is just a treasury of vintage ads: from 224 pages 67 of advertisements. Although 62 years isn't a big gap of time, but a lot of things have changed dramatically. In 1951 imperial portable typewriters were worth waiting for, not iPads. Flat tobacco pouches and home canning machines were bestsellers.
Some of them I'm going to post:
