SHAKE with the Farmer's Daughter!"

for some reason i dunno how/why....we do farm animals for easter weekend....so ads with farm animals....AND since it's easter weekend in the USA (non-orthodox, though i have no clue when greek easter is....) and easter monday in canada....let's have easter ads too!! easter clothes, easter candy, easter bunnies....

starting tomorrow friday thru sunday (though yes, of course through monday for canadians :)

and if someone wants to posts vintage ads that contain pot for 4-20, that's fine too....i guess a trifecta would be an ad that contains pot, easter AND a farm animal....

And this advertisement is from the July 1964 issue of the infamous Oz Magazine.

The building, 147 King St, still exists, but there is no longer a business called "Formal Wear" in Australia. The shop is either a Chinese Restaurant or a Porsche Design shop now, and phone numbers went to 7 digits in 1986 and 8 in 1994.

Oz magazine was started by a bunch of students at Sydney University in 1963, endured obscenity trial after obscenity trial, and eventually folded in 1971. I can cope with what they did to Rupert Bear, (just), but a lot of other people couldn't.

The full archives are available for your viewing pleasure. And from them as can do the maths, shaddup.

Office technology, 1962!

Time, July 16 -- The IBM Selectric (with golf-ball printing technology that put IBM "ten years ahead of its time -- where it stayed, firmly rooted, for the next 20 years"):
