Advertising: 50 years ago

Advertising was never aggressive and cut throat competitive half a century back. The following advertising appeared in an American newspaper: “The public is kindly requested to buy Universal Whitener tooth powder. It is neither better nor worse then most of the others in my store, but I think it is just about as good as any of them, and I particularly recommend it because it is made by my nephew, who is a very deserving young man and hopes to be married soon on the strength of it.”
