The Birmingham Archives and Heritage Service in the UK has set up a great Twitter feed that republishes old advertisements from their collections. @AdsofYore tweets copy that was used to advertise genuine products and services in local newspapers years ago. They are often unusual and very funny, some examples are:

How to get fat – Home treatment which works wonders in making scraggy, undeveloped men and women plump and attractive.

Craven ‘A’ cork tipped Virginia. The only cigarette with a cork tip. The shield that guards you against impurities.

Free insurance against death and disease for every reader of the Birmingham Gazette and Express.

Women are to wear their dresses this winter much tighter. This will save on material and show their patriotism.
