Vintage Ad Browser
Brilliant - and dead useful. The Vintage Ad Browser (here) site describes itself as a collection of vintage ads from a variety of sources, including comic books, CD-Roms, websites, APIs, user submissions, book, magazine & comic book scans, and more. It's US focused, but full of interesting and illuminating content nonetheless, like this 1908 ad for intercommunicating telephone sets.

- I am director of the Media and Persuasive Communication (MPC) network at Bangor University where I also lecture on political-economy of the media. I am currently working on a book provisionally titled Deconstructing Privacy for Peter Lang and leading two empirical projects in connection with privacy perception and the use of new media for smoking cessation. I am author of Creativity and Advertising: Affect, Events and Process (Routledge, 2013); The Mood of Information: A Critique of Behavioural Advertising (Continuum, 2011); and Digital Advertising (Palgrave-MacMillan, 2009).
