Vintage Magazine Ads from Duke University's Ad*Access Website

RF Cafe - Duke University's Ad*Access websiteHere are a few examples of a very extensive collection of advertisements for radios and other consumer electronics from magazines back in middle of the last century. Duke University has managed to amass a huge number of magazine ads on their website in a feature called "Ad*Access." There are thousands of high quality scans of magazine ads on topics like beauty and hygiene radios, radio parts, and radio programs, miscellaneous electronic products, such as hearing aids, telephones, etc. See television advertisements, transportation from the first half of the twentieth century (airlines, rental cars, buses, trains and ships), aircraft, trains, ships and busses. Many ads from the WWII era are also available. You could spend hours perusing all the material there.

Here are a few examples of magazine advertisements that would be of particular interest to RF Cafe visitors. Be sure to go to Duke University's Ad*Access site for more. These images would be good for inclusion in presentations and reports as interest getters.
