I found an archive of some shaving ads from last century, decade by decade.

It's fun to see, for example, what would you have to put in an ad to get attention from the gents. You guessed it - pretty ladies!

Check it out

Nice. I think I'll use some of these as wallpaper on my computer.

Thanks, Bruno.

Funny, but I don't remember any of these ads. I don't think they particularly interested me at the time. I remember Ipana commercials with Bucky Beaver in the early 1950s and Vicks jingles on the radio, but not these shaving ads.

Oooo new wallpaper neat...

These ads are amazing, ad companies were using sex to sell all the way back to 1910 and man look at what they did in the '40's!
