Ad Access

This project, funded by the Duke University Endowment Library, offers a database of more than 7,000 images of advertisements between 1911 and 1955. These are taken from American and Canadian newsapapers and magazines. The collection is divided into these subjects: Beauty and Hygiene, Radio, Television, Transportation and World War Two. Especially interesting is the US anti-inflation campaign, persuading people not to spend too much money, to keep inflation down. A good resource for anyone researching advertising or popular culture.
