Old Engine Ads from a bygone era
« on: April 08, 2021, 12:12:18 am »
Here's a collection at 10 second intervals of Old Engine Ads from a bygone era, there should be something for everyone here in this mix. Make yourself a cup of coffee sit back and relax and get transported back into this wonderful era that we all still enjoy to this day with our engine collections and collecting -

Spectacular time machine you have posted for us here Jim!

Was this all made from your personal ephemera collection?

My only suggestion would be to put some subtle and soothing, possibly classical, music in the background, but it's so nearly perfect as is, that it may not really add much if you did.
"Information is not knowledge, Knowledge is not wisdom, Wisdom is not truth, Truth is not beauty, Beauty is not love, Love is not music: Music is THE BEST...   
Wisdom is the domain of the Wis (which is extinct). Beauty is a French phonetic corruption of a short cloth neck ornament currently in resurgence..."

Thanks Daniel and yes mate, the majority of them are framed and put up in my steam room. I really do like immersing myself in ephemera of this period it just ads something to the whole experience for me. Unfortunately now though, I am completely out of any more wall space  :(
