Ads From Back In The Day – #3

Airlines need women!  But only as stews, ticket agents or receptionists for “a lifetime career of romance, adventure and travel!”

Here’s an ad targeting black people – its a “bleaching cream” for “complexion beauty” which won’t “wash off” – Nadinola Light for a “smoother, brighter, lighter appearance.”


This one is rather self-explanatory with one plain and simple objective .  “How to meet her, get her turned on and get her into bed.”    As if women are prey.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    I shouldn’t laugh… 🙂
    (The skin bleaching ad is actually very sad. Look what happened to Michael Jackson)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    And I knew a girl who wanted to be an air hostess, when I was 18. I asked her if it was so she could travel to see wonderful places, and she replied “No, to marry a pilot”. She was serious, and that was in 1970. I found out much later that she became an air hostess, for BOAC. She didn’t marry a pilot, but she did marry a rich passenger who was a fair bit older than her.
