Vintage Photos Taken From My Google Plus Page - 8

This weeks vintage photos and illustrations from my Google + page.

I came across the old print of the Steam Packet Chancellor Livingston (as above) recently. It states: "Built from plans drawn by Fulton for a corporation that held a monopoly of the waters of New York state for the use of steam propelled vessels."

Vintage Halloween Scene Photo

I wasn't too sure what the photo above was all about but my Google+ friend Thex Dar thought it was a Halloween picture. He then went to the trouble of getting a selection of such photos and turned them into a video for me, which can be seen here.

The Gillette safety razor advert is quite, erm, unsettling! A child with a razor, how could they have thought that was a good idea?

  2. Mike - my goodness - that video - and we think Halloween costumes of today are scary? These gave me the creeps, completely!!! Some of the photos will be in my head for the rest of the day, and hopefully not longer!

    I agree - the baby in the ad in seriously insane.
