Every now and then I want to keep an advert for my own private collection, and this is one such example.  I’ll let the image do the talking.

One of the many things that attracted me to Antique Advertising in the first place were the illustrations. And this simple little ad is a beauty.  I hope you like it too.

Brookes Monkey Brand Soap was a prolific advertiser, with dozens of examples in my collection.  This is one of my favorites.  I think its the colour that does it for me, a bit out of the ordinary.  Got to just love the caption “For Cleaning Golf Implements”.
