Madison Avenue Monday: Pardon Me for Bragging

Couldn't help but share this unusual ad for Kotex in the August 1939 edition of Ladies Home Journal even though my poor ol' scanner wasn't quite wide enough to capture the entire image on the large format page. (The bottom caption reads "Better Say Kotex--Better for You"). It gives us a glimpse of the hair styles, make up, and clothing that was fashionable in the late 1930s. And we can really see how times have changed in comparing this to ads for the same product now!


  1. Collette! Hey - this is nifty. I wish the ads for these products were this modest today!
