Today! June 28th & Dr. West's toothbrushes  
Dr. West's toothbrushes, 1928

Like other ads of the time, these are boldly colorful and graphically original.  Movement, unusual angles, and other effects (like the light shining through these as colored shadows) make the Dr. West's ads worth knowing.

Check out the Sphinx, spinning brushes, and the maze, all...

They look very modern for that era! I had no idea they had changed so little in over 80 years.
