Vintage Ad Browser is a site at which you can peruse print advertisements from as early as the 1700’s to the present. There are over 100,000 ads available to browse through. The ads are organized by category (Sports, Clothing, Cigarettes and Tobacco, TV and Electronics), then organized by years. There is a search feature that allows you to sort for specific products. In addition to being a fun site to browse, I think it has great educational potential: teaching about design, a study of the decades, teaching about bias, hidden messages, propaganda, etc.
