Flashback Friday 1-24

Post by Flasher » Fri Jan 24, 2020 11:48 am

No trivia with this week's Flashback.  Just a look back at some print advertisements from years gone by.  Ads that were apparently seemingly acceptable back then.  But now, certainly require one to say -- out loud -- "What the hell?"

The second is offensive no matter when it was published.  The first one I can see that "back in the day"

The second one is just unbelievable... the first one isn't as bad if you take it out of its era of the MAN and think "oh this hubby bought his pregnant wife a new washer/dryer.  I would have loved that when I was pregnant, lol.

I agree. The second one - I don;t know what people were thinking! The first one - taken in context with the era when women stayed home - didn't work outside the home, okay.  Definitely would need a washer/dryer with a baby on the way and no disposable diapers!
