Maids in Old Advertising

My collection of maids in vintage newspaper and magazine advertisements. Once a popular theme, it has almost entirely disappeared in the post-WW2 world.

    1. Indeed, maids were apparently a mainstay of early advertising. Much like a housewife in the 1950s.

    2. The reproductions of these adverts is interesting and are often on sale at stately homes

  2. The Booke's Soap advert is really nice, I had it framed and hangs in our kitchen, unfortunately the hint hasn't been taken regarding a more suitable attire lol
