Whether you love it or loathe it, there’s no denying that advertising is a huge influence in our lives, and always has been.
The ads themselves have changed a lot over the years, as has the technology used to make them, the way we look at them (could you have imagined that you’d be getting so much advertising through a tiny handheld computer?), and the products being advertised.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane and have a peek at some of the ads that we we remember from our childhoods and adolescence.
It’s the staple breakfast cereal of all Aussie households! While the bricks of wheat that could rival cement once dried haven’t changed, the ads sure have!
Another Aussie staple, this chocolatey treat has long been marketed as a health food.
We don’t think any modern woman would be thrilled to receive a clothesline as a gift, but times have changed.
The much loved salty spread, full of vitamins.
Another household name for Aussies.
These mints were certain to clear your nose and freshen your breath!
Women have long been using undergarments to squeeze themselves into shape. Berlei is still a popular bra manufacturer today.
Do you remember this airline?
Still a maker of quality woollen blankets.
Still delicious, and still lining dentists’ pockets!
