And a jazzy German ad for Reval

From the Flickr pages of Harald Haefker, a beautiful set of five ads (all link to bigger versions) for Lufthansa Cocktail in several varieties.

(Lufthansa is the main German airline.  The cocktail was Apricot-Orange liqueur 30%abv, is apparently for sale).

Wide is the world, our luck is near.  To us! with Lufthansa cocktail.

This was a big deal in the former East, especially in the immediate post-war years, due largely to the shortage of and cost of importing actual coffee.

Simply add water, stir, ready!

A modern coffee in our modern time.  From VEB Bero, Berlin.  (East, at the time. GDR).

They go on at great lenght about what instant coffee is and how it tastes, so it was clearly new.

One of the most hilarious CDs I have is an amazing collection of German advertising music, jingles, etc. It captures an era and a mood just perfectly.  There is also a "Pop-shopping 2".   You can get them at Amazon (Part 1) (Part 2) and there's even a remixes album now :D

Or you can just listen to a sampler HERE

FYI this is for VEB Wolfen, an East German company, but ran in a Polish magazine.


"It's never too early to discover the world."
LTU: LTU Lufttransport-Unternehmen GmbH was an airline with its head office in Halle 8 at Düsseldorf International Airport in Düsseldorf, Germany; it is now fully owned by Air Berlin. The initials stand for the German phrase LuftTransport-Unternehmen. (Wikipedia)
