Many of these were published in 40s. 70 years ago these were viewed very differently from today.
Many are very offensive. I don't understand how anyone allowed these ads to be published. Sexism, racism, discrimination, etc...that's just awful.

Wow, I've seen some offensive old ads before, but some of these are downright sickening! It's amazing how much standards have changed over a few decades. I'd love to see the whole collection.
I will put the PowerPoint file on my website and leave a link here.
There are a number of sites showing the "start cola earlier" ad to be a fake. Here's one that claims responsibility for it: http://rjwhite.tumblr.com/post/472668874/fact-checking

Unfortunately the creepiest ad, "Love Cosmetics", is probably real:
It also appears on this site, which attributes it to ad agency Wells, Rich, Green, which is mentioned in the Wikipedia link.
wow- very interesting - i find one thing in common between these ADS and today's ADS. They both use beautiful women.

@gangstabarbie: The research for social psychology in marketing began in the 40s with a nephew of Sigmund Freud. Something that was learned early on is that we are more likely to believe a claim by a person if we see them as physically attractive. In addition, we may also believe that using the product will make us more attractive as well.
