Gypsy Creams


Men Only / July 1950

Well, it’s not quite as awful as this corker from Amplex, but how fascinating to see men’s grooming as closely scrutinised as women’s, so early on in the development of deodorant. Naturally, the approach is to appeal to men’s ambition, rather than whether their very existence is causing offence to others, but the message is clear; high-ranking men might sweat the same as a spot welder, but they’re not allowed to show it.

Love this! In fact, love all the adverts on this page, especially the stiff upper lip Tom Long fags one.

It’s full of treats, isn’t it? They don’t write copy like that any more…
