I think old newspapers – and especially old ads – are fascinating. Windows to a world gone by, and all that.
I was recently looking through an April, 1948 edition of our local paper – Saranac Lake’s Adirondack Daily Enterprise, archived at Northern New York Historical Newspapers. I found it really interesting that nearly every ad is either nightclub/bar/entertainment related, or ladies-in-the-home stuff.
I’ll catch you later. We’re scooting over to the Pontiac to catch that new flick Bambi, and then we’re driving out to The Birches for dinner. Maybe to The Top Hat after that for drinks.
