Vintage advert: 1960s anti-smoking campaign

vintage 1960s mod scooter smoking advert

One of a set of ten government anti-smoking posters from the 1960s. This example focuses on what smokers could afford to buy if they gave up cigarettes. Isn’t this a great campaign? I wish I could find the other posters from this campaign!

    I love this, it’s refreshing to see an anti smoking campaign that doesn’t involve photos of damaged body parts! Shame people wouldn’t respond to this style of campaign any more, I think it’s fab :-)

    What a cool little ad. I didn’t realise the anti-smoking campaigns went as far back as the 60s…

    Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix
    this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
