An Edwardian Advent Calendar – 17th Dec

Each day I will unveil a new entry in my Advent calendar based on adverts printed in the Illustrated London News during the month of December exactly 100 years ago – in 1912, the Edwardian era.

Each day I will display an advert from my collection of the newspapers for your delight.

    Sorry, there are a couple of typos in the list in the calendar – Matinée cigarettes (not Mantinee), and – appropriately – Scrubb’s Ammonia (not Scubb’s)
