Playboy – Vintage Ads from 1958 to 1974

Playboy sells itself in this vintage series of advertising

What kind of man reads Playboy? Well, if you believe the vintage ads for the magazine published between 1958 and 1974, the readers of Playboy are all young men, most caucasian, handsome, rich, talented, adventurous, athletic, intelligent, and always surrounded by beautiful women. In reality, it seems this advertising series was primarily intended to market the magazine to advertisers and convince them that readers were not just interested in photos of naked women. Ummm…ok sure 😉

Jean-Marie Donat – TeddyBär

Jean-Marie Donat's mildly creepy book of men dressed as polar bears

Jean-Marie Donat: This mysterious and mildly terrifying series of vintage photographs taken in Germany between the first World War and the 1960s has now been published in a fascinating book entitled TeddyBär. Finding an old photograph of a man dressed as a polar bear by accident, publisher and art collector Jean-Marie Donat held on to the picture for fifteen years without thinking much about it until discovering a second, then a third similar image. It was then that Jean-Marie Donat had the idea to collect more photographs of these interesting men dressed as polar bears, posing with passersby, on the beach, and even with Nazi soldiers. So strange yet very intriguing – love it! 🙂

Bernard Hoffman Captures the ‘Vis-O-Matic’

Bernard Hoffman documents what 'online' shopping looked like in 1950

Bernard Hoffman: Photographed for LIFE magazine by Bernard Hoffman, Canadian entrepreneur Lawrence Freiman imagined the future of retail by creating the Vis-O-Matic, an innovative store where customers could view and make purchases via a futuristic system of photographic slides. Long before the birth of the internet and online shopping, bicycles, dresses, shoes, toys, hats and much more could be ordered by customers and then received via home delivery. Wow, this guy was way ahead of his time – awesome stuff! 🙂

CNN Remembers the Golden Age of Aviation

CNN recalls when airlines were selling dreams & high-end luxury

CNN: Transporting us back to the golden age of aviation, CNN have compiled a selection of vintage photographs from a time when airlines were selling globetrotting dreams and high-end luxury. The exact opposite of today’s low cost carriers, these photographs from the 50s and 60s remind us that air travel was once synonymous with fashion, cocktails, luxury, glamour, gastronomy, and social status although it did come at a price – a Sydney to London round trip cost the equivalent of thirty weeks wages! Happy Flashback Friday 🙂
