‘Ad’ a little history

Here’s something a bit different. John Thomson lives in Southdown and has been collecting all sorts of adverts for over 30 years.

He tells me that he has a particular interest in local ads as they often have a unique tale not often shared.

He writes:

‘I’ve just started a new series of videos looking into the history of towns through old adverts in magazines.

As I’m from Bath myself, the first short video is about an advert from1916 for the Pulteney Hotel by Laura Fountains. The link is at…

I’ll be adding more of the short Bath videos over the next week but will have full episodes soon.

Hope you like it!’

What a great idea John.
