Here are some ads from the 1950's. Mostly sexist to the extreme

Some are interesting. Some bring my blood to boil

Ahh, them was the daze. smirk wink

The Bell & Howell projector one reminded of something that the father of my best friend growing up once said. He was one of those real-man-among-men of the late 60's. A man of those ads. "A woman with a pointy bra never loses a dance."

Still makes me chuckle when I think of it, but it still makes sense really. grin

Didn't the bazooka bra come about from the movies not being able to show cleavage in the late thirties and on. So the pointy bra was created to give the sense of sex appeal. Coupled with tight sweaters.

Ahhhh, Sabrina. I've always admired women who's boobs arrive 10 minutes ahead of them. blush
