Probably was white lead paint too. I agree this is the worst old advertisement I've seen on this site.

As awful as these are, I gotta admit, I'd rather see them in this sort of setting, like a historical documentation sort of thing, than to pretend they never existed. How can we get better if we don't recognize the faults of our past?

I think these old advertisements shouldn't be suppressed. I also wish they'd show kids the pictures of Polio victims and Measles and the such that killed so many people before the mass vaccinations.

Carhop

COMPLETELY AGREE ABOUT THE VACCINATION THING!

I have to agree with Carhop -- Don't sanitize history. It's just wrong.

I agree, this stuff shouldn't be sanitized or hidden away, but it does need to be put in context. Those were simpler (I never said better - just simpler) times when this sort of thing was the norm. People need to realize that so we don't backslide any further.
