Cole Swimsuits (1956)

If you're in or around NYC, you should check out UNBRANDED: A CENTURY OF WHITE WOMEN, 1915-2015 at the Jack Shainman Gallery in Chelsea, an exhibition of ads with all the copy and product info stripped out. A few were obvious (Maidenform, Cream of Wheat) and I recognized the ad above/photo below because I had it queued up to post.



More photos from the exhibit. )

Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots was a game marketed in the mid-60s by Marx Toys which featured two boxing robots—the "Red Rocker" and the "Blue Bomber."

I'm posting about it today because it was mentioned today in an essay in the New York Times: Layers of Loss in New York City.
