These are reproductions of old Parker adverts that are in a small Parker address book. I am posting them on the off chance that they may be of interest.

These are just wonderful! I like the one with the very straightforward copy, "Buy a Parker Lucky Curve Fountain pen because it is a good pen." Still a good reason to buy anything.

Thanks for these! They tell much about advertising history, too, don't they?

And agree with HDoug.
Warm Regards, Miranda

That one cracked me up.

I'm a huge fan of the 50s era 51 ads, partly because I miss the old ad style of an illustration with lots of explanatory copy.

if I can contribute myself:

Thanks everyone. If these are indicative of advertising history they show that pictures of young women have been used for a long time to try to sell things

Takkun, thanks for your addition. I have changed the heading in the hope that others will add adverts to the thread.
