1890 Soap Ad “What a Cake of Soap Will Do”

I came across a post the other day of a book of old soap ads for Ivory soap.  Oh my word some of these are hilarious.  I posted some of my favorites, but you can see them all here: “What a Cake of Soap Will Do.”  I think I love the old ads so much because they just show a completely different mentality of how people were targeted in advertizements, but at the same time many of the techniques are the same as in ads today (just less wordy ha!)
