Early 20th Century Ad Pieces

I went to the San Francisco Antiquarian Book, Print and Paper Fair (I will be blogging about that next week) and saw all these cool Ad pieces from the early part of  20th century (I do have two from late in the 19th century here). It is amazing the work that people put in to them to produce them back in the day:

My favorite one. It was an ad to join up with Pancho Villa's revolution
1926 or 1927

Still great advice

I just so love the craftsmanship and graphics of all of these pieces. It was so wonderful to see.


  1. The graphics in vintage ads is beautiful and often quite artistic

  2. oh how interesting! Love old ads!!!

  3. These look interesting. I would love to have a look around. Thanks for sharing at Welcome To The Weekend Blog Hop, hope to see you again soon :)

  4. We take so much for granted these days! What takes us no time at all to create, they labored for long periods of time to make! Thanks for sharing at The Blogger's Pit Stop! Roseann from

  5. well, I see you like exhibits and old graphics like I do. I miss being near DC and seeing all the cultural offerings. I have to adjust to CO though, now we're here. Thanks for the machine tour, and the graphics tour. No way to sign up to follow by email?? I'd love to see your future exhibit trips but forget the blogs I like unless I get notices by email.
