Fun With Old Newspapers

I took these back in 2003 when I found a whole bunch of old newspapers my dad kept. These are all from the 1980’s. (mostly mid 1980’s)

There was a Like soda cooler at this convenience store in Ivor, VA. I drove through Ivor every single day for five years and never pulled over to take a picture of it.

This was part of the “Sunday Coupon Section” of a newspaper in Maine when my parents lived up there for a year in 1982-1983 (this was before I was born).

The last time Tab was advertised in a newspaper, ever.

You can barely see it, but you can see the old Diet Rite logo I love so much!

Perhaps you have already done this, but looking at old newspapers on microfiche at a library may have some cool ads in there for you. I enjoyed looking at the old ads in papers from the ’40’s whilst researching genealogy.
