HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

Bygone days.

I have been long fascinated by old advertising signs and adds. There a style that reflects an age gone by.
I thought Id post a few adds that appeared in the same newspapers as some of the articles about shipbuilding, shipping misadventures and local community activities and stories that appear on this blog.
This is from the Shoalhaven Telegraph dated 1919.

A relaxing semi rural scene showing a finely dressed business man easing back on the lounge and what looks like a well dressed farmer in his cane chair enjoying a cigarette and a refreshing ale. Designed to show the reader the different class of people KB Larger would appeal to.
