1963 Advertisements - Part 3

Well, let me present the Great-Grandmother of ADs.
Woodwards Gripe Water
'Enna Aachu? .. Kozhadha Azhudadhu :-(.. Woodwards gripe water kodu..Nee kozhandhai-a irrukaracha edhu than koduthen:-)'
Put this in a 'while loop' & pass mother, grandmother, great grandmother as parameters.

A dream Ad for any Ad professional. It is definitely one of the all time TOM (Top of the Mind) Ads. To my surprise, the 1963 Woodwards Gripe Water print Ad also runs on the same theme.

Content: Woodwards Gripe Water - This is being used by intelligent mothers for over 50 years

Mind Boggling!
(And the Ad series ends here)

lending libraries also have such bound compilations of serial stories.

the ads somehow reminds me of bournvita. you know how bournvita's advtised in the UK? it's a relaxing bedtime drink. here it's an energy drink!
