Inspiration from Vintage Ads

ResearchBuzz pointed me to this site, which has collected lots of vintage ads and put them up in categories. I checked out the Christmas ads and it was interesting to see that photography seemed to be the unifying theme through the decades. Kodak had quite a lot of ads

I think this site could provide a lot of inspiration for visual journal and collage.

Tara at ResearchBuzz passed on this warning: “One warning: the ads here do reflect the outlooks and prejudices of their times, and as such some of them are offensive. Pay attention to what categories you decide to browse. I wouldn’t let a kid go through this site on their own.”
